PKN Manila in Boracay

As a follow-up to yesterday's poster for PechaKucha Night in Manila Vol. 1, organizers Marielle Nadal and Dang Sering have sent us two more posters to add to the collection. First is the one that was created for a "pocket event" held on the island of Boracay back in September, and then the poster for last month's Vol. 2. We'll be featuring photos from the December event here later this week.

Poster for PKN Manila Vol. 1

The first PechaKucha Night in Manila was held back in June of 2008 -- which was before we started blogging here -- and after seeing the great poster that was produced for the event, we thought we'd share it now.

PechaKucha Night in Manila Vol. 2 was held earlier this week -- we can probably expect a photo report sometime soon -- but we just now found the very cute graphic pictured above from the website put together by local organizers to help promote the event. We really love that tiny little figure "informing" us of all the presenters, and hope to see him again when Vol. 3 comes around.
