Program for PKN Oslo Vol. 11
PechaKucha Night in Oslo Vol. 11 was held a few days ago, and organizer Arpna Gupta Stokke sends in a few photos of the terrific program they prepared for the event. It was produced by graphic design studio Your Friends, and as Arpna explains, tips its hat to the birthcountry of PKN, Japan. The programme has taken its inspiration from Japan, birth place of Pechkucha night. The format is based on standard Japanese paperformats JIS. The traditional Shiroku Ban is the size of the folded out program. The flyers, drink coupons and tickets are also based on the Shiroku Ban format. To get a proper folder for the speakers we've used a origami tecnique which makes it possible to have an 8-page folder without using any binding. It's cost-effective, good for the environment and makes for an intriguing piece of design.

Exhibition "Design Ah!"
As part of Roppongi Art Night 2013, 21_21 DESIGN SIGHT teamed up with the global PechaKucha organization for two very special sessions of 20x20 presentations -- part of the exhibition "Design Ah!" -- starting with a kids workshop during the day that was followed by a presentation session, and then a regular PechaKucha event for adults in the evening. The kids workshop took place before the session, with a group of children who had applied to take part. They all had a couple of hours to take photos of things they found interesting in the area, and then prepare a PechaKucha 20x20 presentation. The evening session featured a fun mix of design talent, and kicked off with a presentation by Roppongi Art Night’s artistic director Katsuhiko Hibino. Both session were hosted by PechaKucha founders Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham, along with renowned graphic designer and director of the "Design Ah!" exhibition Taku Satoh.
