Modern Union will happily take on any design project that elevates details to obsessiveness.

Design Diversity - Powered by PechaKucha

  We hope that you were able to make it out to PechaKucha Night Cleveland - Volume 21, which took place last Friday evening at the citadel of free speech, The City Club of Cleveland. It was a yet another truly magical evening here in Cleveland listening to amazing, creative and inspiring stories. As many have noticed, space was fairly limited at about 450 people, and we needed to distribute tickets via our Facebook page(still FREE:) to make sure we did not take the venue beyond their capacity. If you were not able to make it out, have no fear, we video taped the entire evening and are planning on posting those presentations as soon as we can process them. A special thanks goes out to Dan Moulthrop, Carrie Miller and everyone at The City Club of Cleveland for making that such an amazing partnership and evening. We are looking forward to partnering with them on many events in the future. Also, if you did not have a chance to make it out, or you did and just can't get enough inspiration, you have another opportunity TONIGHT to be inspired. The event titled "DesignDiversity - Powered by PechaKucha" takes place at Take 5 in downtown Cleveland. The event doors open with a Happy Hour from 7-8pm and the presentations will start at 8pm. The presenter list is pretty amazing and features 5 African American creative professions and will be emcee'd by Jennifer Coleman. Presenters include: Terran Washington Designer, Little Jacket Michele Crawford Intern Architect, Robert P. Madison International Jason Russell City Planner, City of Lakewood Diane Davis-Sikora Associate Professor, Kent State University College of Architecture & Environmental Design Arlene Watson Principal and Creative Director, Möbius Grey LLC Event Details: We hope you can make it out to the first "Powered by PechaKucha" event in downtown Cleveland. We are going to be working hard throughout 2014 to not only bring you GREAT PechaKucha Night events, but we are going to be aggressively working with various organizations to fill the calendar with Powered by PechaKucha opportunities in between. What is "Powered by PechaKucha" you ask? Powered X PKN events are one-off events that are separate from regular city-based PechaKucha Nights, but still utilize the 20 images x 20 seconds format. The events will be completely organized by other organizations and oftentimes have very different focuses, but PKNCLE is going to do what it can to support each event it can to help everyone tell their creative stories. If you are interested in hosting a "Powered by PechaKucha" event, please email us at and we will definitely reach out to talk about the process. Cheers to an amazing, inspiring and creativity filled 2014! -PKN Cleveland Creative Team Michael Christoff Raseem Parker Aseem Garg Emily Bacha Trent Boerner Heather Lenz David Purpera
