Go behind the scenes with the DDC and learn about Aaron’s process for creating marks, logos and more. Each student will attack a logo on their own with guidance from Aaron. Could be something you are currently working on, or, have always wanted to make. Tips, tricks, tales and threats will be shared along the way. The workshop will be three hours, and refreshments will be provided.  Computers provided, but you're welcome to bring a laptop. Be sure to bring some Field Notes, a  pencil and an iron will. Exciting DDC door prizes to all who attend.

This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to work in a small intimate setting with the guidance of Aaron himself. Only 30 tickets available and will go fast!
