Just heard about Pecha Kucha New York, which is like a speed design talk. They describe it like this: each presenter is allowed 20 images, each shown for 20 seconds each – giving 6 minutes 40 seconds of fame before the next presenter is up.
The line up for the next talk January 31st is as follows:
Amale Andraos and Dan Wood
WORK Architecture Company
Afaina de Jong
Human Rights Watch
Ada Tolla and Giuseppe Lignano
I’m not familiar with all the designers, but the two that I’m really interested in hearing are David Reinfurt and Mathew Waldman. Dexter Sinister and Nooka rank pretty high in my biased opinion. For more info on the event and the speakers, check out Pecha Kucha New York.
