A few weeks back I had the distinct pleasure of seeing Aaron Draplin of the infamous Draplin Design Co. (also creator of Field Notes) speak in London. The talk was probably the most inspiring I’ve ever seen – he is a truly special person, as humble as he is talented.
During the talk he spoke about his Flickr account and how he spends a crazy amount of time when he travels going to garage sales, antique auctions, etc. collecting and photographing amazing vintage products and graphics.
I was amazed at the staggering amount of amazing vintage/retro/antique products and graphics he has documented. It is a goldmine of inspiration!
