Tomorrow: DDC Trunk Show!
Posted at 05:00 PM


It’s Friday and I’ve been busy as hell all day long. No rest for the wicked.

TOMORROW FROM NOON TO 3 P.M.: The first annual “DDC TRUNK SHOW” at Office PDX! All the DDC Merch we could muster up to hawk at fair prices. Free advice. Loose talk. Tall tales. Selling posters, too. Of course.

Office puts it way better. Here goes: “TRUNK SHOW Draplin Design Co. 12 to 3 PM. Free. Join us for a trunk show and special viewing and purchasing of DDC merch, all new Field Notes, paper goods and behind the scenes sketches. A rare opportunity!”

Lots of goods. Dumb stuff. New items. Things you don’t need. Our soil, our strength. Paper and staples. Graph paper. Wood pencils. Hair organizers. Calendars. Coin purses. Guitar picks. Whatevs.

Comeon by. Should be fun, and, air conditioned only like Office can.

WHOA, HOLD ON TO YER BOOT STRAPS: This one is going to take yer core temperature and raise it a good 5-6 degrees: Alan Clarke’s London 2012 Olympic Poster proposals. Keep it simple. Beautiful stuff. Wow. And that diving poster? You gotta be kidding me. Incredible.

Like Mr. Aicher, back in the day.

Sorry I missed this one. Shoulda gone later. Can never get my hands on plain field notes. All anyone sells is graph. What are we engineers? Glad you liked the words. Any time, you let me know. I’ll be really close to on-time.
