READ THIS: Aaron James Draplin on The Setup
For all the scanning, scouring, surfing and staring I do to the Internet each day, I rarely discover a voice that sticks with me. There are articles and essays I like for sure, but graphic designer Aaron James Draplin writes really close to how I imagine he sounds.
Here’s an excerpt from his interview on The Setup:
I buy a new Apple super tower every couple years, and I soup the sonofabitch up as much as possible with RAM and internal hard drive space. Drive one is for the programs and operating systems. Drive two is for my data. Drive three backs up drive two. Drive four is for my client archives which date back to 1998. Ive got two 30-inch Apple monitors. One for the workboard and palettes, and then one for email, iTunes, calendars and iChat. Not down with switching windows! That shit gives me a headache.
The About page of his website has the same, awesome, natural voice. Love it (as well as the father/son pic)!
