The Dieline Awards and an Aaron Draplin Pop-Up Shop at HOW Design Live

HOW Design Live in Chicago has so many different things going on, there is no way to catch all of it. In a way, it makes everyone’s experience a little unique, which adds to the fun and educational aspects of the event. I had seen a few of the winners from The Dieline Awards when they introduced […]

More Posters, DDC, and Biking for Water at HOW

You can definitely feel the energy at this year’s HOW Design Live in Chicago. I didn’t need to know that over 4,000 creatives are here to tell that it was packed – the fact that I’m writing this in a large room just outside of the speaker set up with video feed for overflow should […]

Head, Heart, Hand, Mountain Dew and Drew

There are parts of a design conference that just never convey right by following them online. Part of it is the design artifacts hanging around to view in person, and part is the interactive and group dynamic that creates them. In this case, a large cube that is sitting there just waiting to be marked […]

Design Camp: Studio on Fire and Paper Puppets

I really wasn’t planning on drawing an owl for my third Design Camp post illustration. In fact, I was actually thinking of doing something more along the lines of a loon or a squirrel. But last night I got this urgent request from Alec Rutgers (@Cdianshield) via twitter: @benlueders @NeenahPaper Can I request for the next daily […]

Design Camp: Paula Scher and Eric Madsen Inspire

Apparently the “Walleye” is Minnesota’s state fish. There’s even a painting of one hanging in my cabin here at Design Camp. Hence I sketched a rough Walleye to signify Day 1 of AIGA Minnesota’s wonderful design conference. (Not sure I was really even aware of the whole “State Fish” thing.

Design Camp Through My Eyes

Just as there’s more to Nebraska than corn and beef, I’m sure there’s more to the state of Minnesota than simply lakes and mooses (meese?). Nevertheless, I still thought it’d be fun to draw a moose to represent day zero of AIGA Minnesota’s amazing event: Design Camp. After driving 5.5 hrs from Omaha to Minneapolis […]

Behind the Ropes at the 2012 HOW Design Live Conference

The HOW Live Design Conference is getting ready to wrap up, and I started to realize that with the four overlapping conferences, a giant tradeshow area, an increased attendance from last year, and the history of Boston around us, there is no way you can even see close to all of this thing. And as much […]
