Over 2 billion t-shirts are sold each year. 700 gallons of water are used to make one t-shirt. More than 17 million tons of cotton was produced last year. 215 billion t-shirts could be produced with this cotton.
Cotton uses more chemical pesticides than any other crop. Americans throw away about 13 million tons of textiles each year.
Let’s disrupt this cycle. Come make your own Parsons t-shirt from a vintage one, repurposed and newly branded creatively by you.
We’ll use a zero VOC mineral based paint typically used as house paint to proudly print our school name.
Be a changemaker!

Using scientific proof and state-of-the-art multimedia techniques, Aaron James Draplin of the Draplin Design Co. delivers a suckerpunch of a talk that aims to provide bonafide proof of work, the highs and lows of a ferociously independent existence and a couple tall tales from his so-called career in the cutthroat world of contemporary graphic design. Just a regular guy with a trajectory a little dirtier than yours, his talk is open to all oncomers brave enough to show up. If you are a youngster, you may find yourself inspired to attack your design future in a different way. If you are established, you may just leave feeling grateful you don’t have anything to do with him. Hard to say. Be there!
After the event you are invited to join Aaron for a reception and book signing of advanced copies of his Draplin Design Co.: Pretty Much Everything book in The Atrium.
