PKN Knoxville #13 Poster

We are lucky that Rob Laliberte of WDWRK | small wares co. was willing to share his graphic talents to promote the 13th Pecha Kucha event in Knoxville. A word from the artist below.
***************************** The idea was to design something visually striking using the literal meaning of PechaKucha "chit chat". It is about placing you in the conversation of someone expressing to you "Let's talk!" and "Thankyou" Arigato. The design aesthetic is a subtle nod to Japanese street art, neon lights, and Japanese cartoons. Depictions of characters that often have more meaning, then just a visual stylization. Through the meaning of colors, blue represents one-to-one communication, especially communication through the voice. It is speaking the truth through verbal self-expression - it is both the teacher and the public speaker. - Rob *****************************
