Aaron Draplin Studio Tour Auction

GDC Manitoba offers an Aaron Draplin Studio Tour to the highest bidder

UPDATE: This auction was won by the Graphic Design Students at Red River College.

Who? Legendary Designer Aaron Draplin is coming to town!

What? The GDC Manitoba Chapter and New Media Manitoba are bringing Aaron in for a speaking engagement (tickets online here), and we’d LOVE to give you the opportunity to have a 1:1 with the man himself. PLUS, we’ll throw in 5 tickets to his speaking engagement at the Park Theatre that night.

Where is the 1:1 with Aaron? Your studio!

Wait, he can be in YOUR studio? Hell yeah! Show off your [expletive] awesome designing setup, or pick his brain at a bar or restaurant. Heck, you can even take him to the mall. You win the auction, you call the shots. Wherever you go, just keep in mind that you are going to have some serious Aaron design knowledge dropped on you.

When is the 1:1? Friday, November 6, 2015. Schedule is still TBD but would most likely be in the morning.

Why? Because you’re a great boss/creative director and want to do something pretty darn cool for your designers. And you like self-improvement, right?

How can I get in on this action?: Send a direct message the GDC Manitoba Twitter account @gdcmb with your bid. The highest offer will be tweeted out as the auction proceeds. Bidding ends Sunday, Nov. 1, 2015, at 12 p.m. At that point, we’ll announce the highest bidder.
