One for the weekend. There are bad words dead ahead. Tell the kids to leave the room. My man makes a very good point. Listen and learn. Spread this like it's sick Twitter Facebook Google+ Tumblr Reddit Print email
Aaron Draplin is the tits. Tells it like it is for sure. He’s got a few other vids over on the youtubes where he speaks candidly about design…if yer inclined.
The eyesores of yesterday become the treasures of today.
Draplin is an inspiring dude. And I say “dude” because it’ll piss him right off if he ever sees this comment.
Of all my past landlords, Aaron was definitely one of them.
Inspiring, very cool post. Now every time I see a cool sign replaced with crap the number $15,000.00 is gonna pop up in my head. That’s a fucking crime.
Man speaks truth.
Easy to dismiss things as nostalgia, but craft has taken leave, and there’s more to design than a workable knowledge of illustrator. Cheap plastic fluorescent signs create blight. Used to be they weren’t tolerated.
Also, per yesterday”s post, watch this:
look at the tool boxes behind him.i was lucky enough to be gifted a 1951 Schwinn paperboy bicycle. todays Schwinn paperboy bicycle looks more like a mountain bike
Right below the Human Powered Trails, and next to the Myrick eco park, we now have a giant LED sign. Messages change every 8 seconds. It requires air conditionres to cool the mechanism it sucks so much electricity. You can now go for a midnight hike in the woods and keep yourself oriented by the comforting glow of advertising. Onwards progress.
Drank a little bought $300 and couldn’t tie to my Passat and hired some other dudes to take it down.
No, fuck you, moneybags.
this JUST happened to me at work. no, it didn’t involve a sign or ebay, but it did involve people pulling their head out of their @$$ long enough to see the bigger picture. (the Corel Draw part made me giggle.)
