26: OK Pants
Welcome to the Creative South Podcast! I’m your host, Jason Frostholm. My guest this week is Aaron Sechrist, better known to the design world as OK Pants. Aaron has worked with clients like Disney, House of Blues, and Patton Oswalt; as well as having his work featured in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. We talk about growing up in Cleveland, his blue color work ethic, getting his start out of college designing ads for escorts in the local arts and leisure newspaper, his love for stand-up comedy, and his involvement with Weapons of Mass Creation, all right after this.
