Here’s a good one for all you graphic designers out there. Watch everyone’s favourite logo designer, Aaron Draplin, design a logo in 15 minutes. This is the sort of content that I was dying for around the time I was in school. Actually, watching this is exactly how I felt when I first started as a co-op in the concept art department at Electronic Arts. All these seasoned illustrators and designers were making stuff all around me, and I was just sitting there, watching every thing they did, soaking it all up.
