What Youth

One of my favorite publications of all time. What Youth is an online and print publication (currently released issue 17) based in Newport Beach, CA. The publication covers everything from surfing and skating to music to interviews with artist, graphic designers, and anything in between. There online content and visuals are awesome but they still believe in the power of print and it shows. 

Aaron Draplin


  • This is an interview with designer Aaron Draplin from The Great Discontent, an online publication from Frank Chimero. 
  • I found this article super cool because Draplin shares some gems about being a self-taught artist who has gone to work with giants like Nike and Ford Motors. In the interview he walks through his process of becoming a designer. Draplin speaks honestly not, in this posh or over-the-top know it all tone and it’s inspiring and refreshing.
