Tom Allen, full-time artist and award-winning illustrator, talks about his recent 'hits' and 'misses' as he navigates the uncertain world of magazine freelance photo-illustration. Publication credits include Newsweek, Vanity Fair, The Wall Street Journal, and OUT magazine.
Zhe Wang shares about the on-demand industry: there are many products people don't want to buy or services they only want to pay for when they really need it. This is called the on-demand economy. You don't want a car, you want transportation. You don't want a beach house ... well, you actually do want a beach house, but you can't afford one, so instead you'll hire one. But you get where this is going.
Diseñar desde el corazón consciente
BY GABI VALLADARES
@ VOL 2
ON APR 28, 2016
Papusa nace de mi necesidad personal de conseguir franelas y ropa que fuese un poquito más distinta a lo normal, hace 4-5 años que empecé a hacer esto. Mucha gente dice yo no compro aquí sino cuando viajo o lo que sea, también pasa que cuando consigues ropa acá es muy normal que sea en tiendas donde los tirajes son muy grandes y es común que te puedas conseguir lo mismo en muchas personas; entonces eso no me gustaba para nada y empecé a vestirme muy unicolor, hasta que en un momento dije ya va, si me gustan los estampados y yo quisiera un estampado qué me pondría, porque eso de llevar una marca encima jamás me ha gustado, para llevar una franela que tenga una marca gigante en el pecho me tienen que pagar, gratis no hago publicidad, entonces dije a ver qué me pondría yo, qué diría yo, cómo lo haría yo y empecé a pintar a mano esas franelas unicolores.

PKN Winnipeg Vol. 13 Recap
On March 7, PechaKucha Winnipeg's 13th installment took place at the Park Theatre. We are all in agreement that this may have been one of the best ones yet! Although to be honest, we probably say that every time. Certain themes seem to evolve out of PechaKucha Nights. It's an organic thing; the presenters don't create idea cartels ahead of time. This time the ideas were diverse but kept circling back to (as one member of the audience put it) how design and visual communication can power physical and social change. The 11 presentations were all remarkable in their own ways: some poetic, some more visual, and then there was the musical finale. Our presenters were: Matt Henderson (Teacher and Activist) Andrew Yankiwski (Partner, Precursor Productions) Blair Helgason (Designer) Brian Kelcey (Writer, Speaker and Policy Consultant) John Johnston (Freelance Photographer) Nicole Barry (Co-Founder, Half Pints Brewery) Wendy Sawatzky (Artist), Matt Brooks (Graphic Design, RRC Student) Howard Gurevich (Owner, Gurevich Fine Art) Joseph Ranseth (Purpose-Driven Marketer) Erin Propp & Larry Roy (Singer/Songwriter). The GDC Manitoba Chapter is proud to present PechaKucha Night and to be part of the worldwide phenomenon. To read more about the presenters, please visit the event page at pechakucha.org. Karen Niedzwiecki, CGD has written a recap of the event on her blog, karenia. Carson Samson, CGD has also compiled notes ("snippets," he calls ’em) of each PKNWPG Vol. 13 presentation. You can read his account at DesignBusiness.ca.
