The Man. The Myth. The Legend

While at AdobeMax this past year, I got a chance to listen to the inspiring Aaron Draplin speak on everything design related as well as his background story. Aaron is one of the few dudes in the industry that I really look up to. From his literal hands-on design approach, his dedication, to his independent nature, he tackles every part of the design aspect on his own. After getting the chance to speak with him, I was a fan even more. His down to Earth attitude and warm hearted charisma made it super pleasant to just have an easy going conversation. I used to think that maybe I was trying to do too much at once. But Aaron has inspired to stay ambitious and continue to persevere. Getting to meet him was truly a humbling experience and I hope one day I get the pleasure to collaborate with him.
