Draplin Does Winnipeg

Featuring: Draplin Design Co.
Ghost Signs
The Exchange

Aaron Draplin (@draplin), the celebrated graphic designer from Portland, Oregon, stormed through Winnipeg in November 2015, thanks to a collaboration between the Graphic Designers of Canada (Manitoba Chapter) and New Media Manitoba. For many, the Draplin Design Company Road Show on Nov. 6 was the highlight, but the man known as one of the most important designers in North America also had some time to take in some local flavour. We got the chance follow him through the culturally rich Exchange District of Winnipeg with Matt Cohen from the Advertising Association of Winnipeg to document their time admiring hand-painted signs, admiring hand-painted signs, and visiting Tiny Feast – the local shop that sells Fields Notes – and junkin’.
