Friday 10/26 @6pm
A Rip Roaring Speaking Fiasco ($30)

Kicking off at 6:00 PM on October 26th, 2018, Aaron will deliver a blistering talk held at DISTRICT HALL in Boston’s Seaport District. You’ll be regaled with Aaron’s first-hand account of making a living in through graphic design, traveling all across the county saving graphic treasures, striking out on his own, and inventing his own world.

So gear up for an exciting evening of tall tales, design struggles, and personal anecdotes mixed with an ample amount of hugging, crying, laughing, and more. You can bet your bottom dollar that you’re in for one rip-roaring night of education, insight and entertainment. Plus there will be a fully stocked DDC merch table with a litany of wares that you most definitely need in your life.

Friday 10/26 & Sat 10/27
Logo Design Workshops ($99)

Aaron’s been gracious enough to offer very limited hands-on logo design workshops capped at just 40 participants each, on Friday 10/26 and Saturday 10/27. We’ll run a morning and afternoon session, and in each of these two-hour extravaganzas you’ll go behind the scenes with the DDC and learn Aaron’s patented, propriety, and secret family recipe of logo design herbs & spices.
