“How simple some ideas can be but you got to make them happen.. cats and famous paintings...”

At Pecha Kucha Night Brighton​ Vol. 23, Will Hudson, the founder of creative agency called "It's nice that", explains why he's passionate about other people's creative skills. He shows off his favourites such as christmas card, sushi cats and many other interesting things!

 

“They are not just a box or a kiosk, they are a brilliantly designed building.”

In PhoneBox Love from PechaKucha Night Brighton Vol. 23, Philippa Stanton shared with us her love for the world-renowned symbol of Great Britain - telephone boxes. Her love grew to be a fantastic photo project overtime, which we also get a chance to observe in the video.

Philippa is a synaesthetic artist, actress and an Instagram Starlet (she has 500k followers).

 

Coffee is "the third most traded thing on the planet, and it's nearly all hand-picked."

In Coffee Culture from PechaKucha Night Brighton Vol. 24, Founder and Head Roaster of independent coffee company Small BatchAlan Tomlins takes us on journey around the world tracking how coffee is grown and produced. With stunning photograhs from Africa, Asia and the Americas, this PechaKucha is full of facts that all coffee lovers should know. Alan also gives insight in to how coffee is crucial to different cultures and communities. A champion of ethical production, he shows off the people behind your morning coffee.

PechaKucha People: Zara Wood



PechaKucha Person of the week, Zara Wood, better known as Woody, is a "creative". As an Artist, designer, illustrator, curator and lecturer, she says she enjoys using that word as a noun: “It’s full of activity and seems to encompass everything I do.”  In addition to running her own design studio and product range of high-profile fashion collections to large-scale public art commissions, she’s drawn to supporting and promoting talented creative people, hence her role as PechaKucha City Organizer in Brighton, UK. Going back with PechaKucha all the way to 2003, she says, “I find the format exciting and inspirational - both as a presenter and a viewer. I love how it brings people together.



We peer out on PechaKucha Night Brighton who boardwalks their way into this week's City Focus spotlight for uploading a swell of awesome 20x20 presentations from their recent Vol. 24! Check out their presentations and the nearly 8000 others continually being added to our archive of creativity!

Sculptor Nick Sayers began very small.

He was fascinated with the sphere, and began creating spheres from objects not ordinarily associated with this three-dimensional shape -- like measuring tape. In today's Presentation of the Day, "Geodesic Dome Sculptures" from PKN Brighton Vol. 18, Nick shows us some of his works, from very small spheres to geodesic domes large enough sit in. His work culminates into a new, grander project: a 120-sided geodesic dome large enough for people to stand in -- all constructed from real estate signs.
