Poster Design and Print 1-on-1 Not 101, 1-on-1. We are inviting only 12 people to a night with Draplin and Mama. We’ll choose a poster theme and then you’ll learn how to concept and idea and design a poster. Tips and tricks from Draplin will include:
01. Poster Design:
6:30 pm - 8:30 pm.
Each attendee will design an element for the poster, and then see how Draplin builds those elements out into one poster design.
Ideation for Poster Creation:
Attendees will participate in ideation w/ Draplin and then sketch their elements. We'll then race to get them ready vectorized and and ready to be assembled into a one-of-a-kind 2-color screen printed poster.
Tips, Tricks, Techniques:
And along the way, Draplin will show tips, tricks, techniques, tales, threats of how he works to make the things he makes.

Getting the file ready for hand off to Mama's sauce...
- Draplin puts things onto their own layers, to make sure we're separating them out properly, and, connecting PMS colors to each piece - getting them print ready. - Then he will show you how to test that you've got it all colored up properly as well as: - Converting fonts to outlines - Cleaning up stuff around the art board = "Clean files equal less problems!" - How to build a nice email to explain what you are ordering, and, what you are handing off.
