Aaron Draplin on being an approachable designer

“When I met designers and graphic designers and artists and artisans and, sort of, like, these cultural elites, it was this instantaneous, like, ‘Oh my god, I can’t even hang with these people…’ You got this sense of, like, you couldn’t hang with these people. So that’s always scared me about building some life in design. I don’t ever want to be unapproachable.”
