Pretty Much Everything

Aaron James Draplin is an uncommonly prolific graphic designer who has done a ton of amazing work. He has created logos and brand identity for everyone from Esquire, Ford Motors, Burton Snowboards, The Obama Administration… and in his first book, Pretty Much Everything, Draplin talks about his work, inspiration, typography, and offers valuable advice and hilarious commentary that illustrates how much more goes into design than just what appears on the page. We have been fans of his work for a long time, making this an easy purchase.
