Design Against Crime
BY SPIKE SPONDIKE
@ VOL 1
ON NOV 09, 2009
Can the design of shop furniture, products, packaging, retail space large and small, display areas, security procedures, retail management and the myriad of other factors in this environment – even the experience of shopping itself – reduce shoplifting and improve ambiance without turning a small newsagent or a large department store into Alcatraz?

We kick off this week's presentation highlights with another one from last week's relaunch of PechaKucha Night in London, with Spike Spondike and "Design Against Crime." Can the design of shop furniture, products, packaging, retail space large and small, display areas, security procedures, retail management and the myriad of other factors in this environment -- even the experience of shopping itself -- reduce shoplifting and improve ambiance without turning a small newsagent or a large department store into Alcatraz?

Poster for PKN Springfield, MO Vol. 1
The upcoming first edition of PechaKucha Night in Springfield, Missouri will mark our third "Springfield" PKN series in the US (Springfield, Illinois and Springfield, Ohio are the other two), and it looks like preparations are well under way. We're including the press release for the event that organizer Amanda Taylor sent us, and here's also a look at the poster for the event, designed by Daniel Zender. PKN Springfield, MO Vol. 1 will happen March 11 at Lindberg's Bar, and you'll find the list of presenters with links on the official event page. Springfield, MO – February 12, 2011 – PechaKucha Night is coming to Springfield on March 12, 2011 at Lindberg’s Bar, 318 West Commercial Street, starting at 7pm sponsored by AIA Springfield. Free admission, donations appreciated. PechaKucha Night gives voice to communities that engender creativity, be it through the various mediums of art, music, design, storytelling, architecture, or philosophy. It was devised in Tokyo in February 2003 by Klein Dytham Architecture as an event for young designers to meet, network, and show their work in public. It has turned into a massive celebration, with events happening in hundreds of cities around the world. Springfield is PechaKucha’s latest stop. Come see what the cult phenomena is all about as we provide prominent and emerging creative minds in this community with a forum to bounce their ideas off of one another! Drawing its name from the Japanese term for the sound of "chit chat", PechaKucha rests on a simple and concise presentation format that keeps ideas moving at a rapid pace. Presenters have 20 slides and 20 seconds per slide to present their material. That makes for 6 minutes and 40 seconds of edifying entertainment. Despite the stuffy “presentation” moniker, PechaKucha’s atmosphere is casual and lax. The idea is to come away from the event with a greater perspective and richer ideas, but most importantly, to enjoy oneself in the process. Springfield’s Volume 1 features PechaKucha organizer Amanda Taylor, architect Andrew Wells, magazine designer Bethany McDonald, retail renegade Bryan Simpson, LemonDrop’s Charlie Rosenbury, artist Daniel Zender, Queen City Collective’s Jordan Fox and Nicole Harrell, and others to be announced. PechaKucha Night Springfield Volume 1 for one night only at Lindberg’s Bar (318 West Commercial Street) on Saturday March 12th. Volunteer based, donation supported, this community event is held for the public, by the public. Free admission, donations appreciated. Sponsored by AIA Springfield.
