The Graphic Designers of Canada – BC Chapter will be hosting the Salazar Student Awards May 11th, 2012 from 6-10pm at UBC Robson Square. The annual awards program recognizes outstanding student design projects from throughout the province. In addition, a special keynote address by Robert L. Peters will take place.
Thursday May 03, 2012 at 7:30pm at The Ironworks. Using scientific proof and state-of-the-art multimedia techniques, Aaron James Draplin of the Draplin Design Co. delivers a suckerpunch of a talk that aims to provide bonafide proof of work, the highs and lows of a ferociously independent existence and a couple tall tales from his so-called career in the cutthroat world of contemporary graphic design. Just a regular guy with a trajectory a little dirtier than yours, his talk is open to all oncomers brave enough to show up. If you are a youngster, you may find yourself inspired to attack your design future in a different way. If you are established, you may just leave feeling grateful you don't have anything to do with him. Hard to say. One night only, Vancouver!
