Don’t back down

The Draplin Project

The Draplin Design Co. are more than the sum of their parts. They are design visionaries above and beyond the call of duty. Maybe visionaries is a little too strong, but they understand the soul of design… not just ‘new media’ design, but DESIGN, the sort of design that forms culture.

I seriously recommend you check out the video of Aaron Draplin to see where they are coming from… I have a lot of respect for this guy. He tells it like it is and is a man after my own heart. Oh, and they have an awesome dawg (nav to Gary on their website!)

Here’s why America is fucked…… (Graphically at least)

Original high quality video footage available from here…

While you’re at it, have a butchers at DDC’s online presence…
The Draplin Design Co.

I happened upon their being (DDC) after I bought a new snowboard in Flims, Switzerland. The board kicks ass – a Forum Stomper. I’m not ashammed to say that the design attracted me to it in the first instance. I did a little digging when I got home and discovered that a crack-pot outfit named Draplin designed the graphics. Since then I drop in on their site from time to time, to see what they are up to. I find it a refreshing inspiration; not just the actual graphics, but the attitude of them.

Keep it up guys.
