As I headed into the studio of Aaron Draplin, I really had no idea what to expect. You see I missed the two back to back Creative Mornings he spoke at earlier this year, which people are still talking about. Sure I know the guy is a big deal and all, but why all the hype about Aaron James Draplin? Why do so many people love this guy? I can now attest, it’s not just the work that makes him special. However, his work is mighty awesome, with a style that’s simple, bold and somewhat nostalgic. For me though, it was his sincerity and the way he spoke with conviction about design. It was heartfelt and suddenly clear to me why he has a way of pushing so many inspirational buttons!

If you’re involved in any part of Portland’s creative community, chances are you’ve seen the fantastic cinematic skills of Paul Searle. He’s filmed events including Portland Creative Mornings, the recent XOXO festival, and our own WeMake workshops and sketchXchanges. For many of the smaller community projects, Paul often donates his time to film and edit footage so everyone can enjoy the events.
Paul has helped Portland’s design community grow by documenting and sharing our collective experiences, talent and inspiration with the rest of the world. Now is our chance to give back by supporting Paul’s new Kickstarter project, The Process.
