    "The Student Package"

    We know the drill. You’re burning both ends, living on PBJ, dried up student loans and whatever you can scrounge between your two part-time server gigs. Days are long and you need a reprieve from monotone professors and the daily grind. Drop all that baggage for a couple hours, grab a couple friends and join us for an evening with Draplin. You deserve it! You’ll have a great time and get some solid insight into the design industry, and learn how things really work outside the hallowed halls of academia.

    Note: This gets you one pre-order (on your honor) Student ticket + button pack.

    “The Design Shop Package”

    Over the years, co-workers turned into friends and those friends eventually became great partners. You’ve finally got your own gig with all the right people in your shop. Your crew’s been following Draplin online for years and now it’s time to get pumped for the real experience. Not only do you, and nine of your best producers, get to sit in front of the big man live, but your logo will share real estate with NKTRNL on all the marketing material for the event. You’ll also get your own signed DDC Idaho poster for your shop and a grip of button packs. It’ll be one of those unforgettable experiences that brings your crew closer together…and it’s a tax write-off. You’ll need those just starting out!

    Note: This gets you 10 pre-order Design Shop tickets + a DDC Idaho Poster for your shop + 10 button packs.

    “The Agency Package”

    So you’re the Grand Poobah now. Your “can-do” design shop evolved into a full-blown agency over the years and you’ve developed an understanding and appreciation for what it really takes to keep the troops fired up, clients happy and gears greased in the design machine that’s become your life. This package gets your whole crew in the door, up close and personal—interns, producers, directors, wordsmiths, bean counters, cat herders…EVERYONE gets in. Your crew will get reserved, front-row seating to the best shit-show experience in town—all the F-bombs, beard sweat and Draplin Orange you can handle. You’ll also have an open invitation to our “after talk” dinner and drinks hour. Swap war stories with Aaron and be part of an experience that will invigorate your agency for years to come.

    Note: This package admits your whole crew + a bunch of DDC merch (for your shop) + 20 button packs
