The Art Institute of California—Orange County, a campus of Argosy University, in partnership with General Assembly and the American Institute of Graphic Arts Orange County, hosted renowned designer Aaron Draplin on campus last May 30, 2017. Draplin held an on-campus workshop for Ai California—Orange County students at 1pm.

He’s spoken at Adobe MAX and TedX conferences.

Following the workshop, Draplin hosted a talk at the Newport Beach Conference center to discuss his book, Pretty Much Everything. The talk was described as a harrowing account of creating the book—from “contracts to the scheming, from the pagination to the design, from the tears to the nightmares, we'll share what it’s like to cram your whole half-wit career into 256 pages.”
