A continued collaboration with Northwoods-bred, Portland-based, garbage-rescuer, recollector, designer, maker - Aaron Draplin of Draplin Design Co.
Arbor is excited to continue our collaboration with prolific designer, Aaron James Draplin of Draplin Design Co. Known for co-founding Field Notes, creating countless logos for the action sports industry, as well as larger clients including Nike, Ford, Esquire, Patagonia, the Obama Administration, The US Postal Service, and NASA.
For Arbor, Draplin is a big source of inspiration and artistic consideration. For years, we watched with appreciation his contributions to snowboarding and the impact Draplin Design Co. has had on the world of graphic design.
In this short video, Draplin talks about creative freedom, timeless design, personal influences, skateboarding, wood, and lessons learned along the way. It’s pure Draplin, and an amazing introduction to his first ever skateboard collab - the new Artist Collection from Arbor.
