Персональные проекты: зачем они нужны в карьере иллюстратора?

@ VOL 22 ON FEB 23, 2017

Ирина Костышина: Профессиональный дизайнер и иллюстратор, живет и работает в Киеве. Сотрудничала с такими клиентами, как St.Sophia Homes, EmCell, ЦСМ, Ухо, фестиваль 86, Closer, ИВР и другими. Стипендиатка программы Министерства культуры Польши Gaude Polonia.

Персональные проекты: зачем они нужны в карьере иллюстратора? Я хотела бы рассказать о такой важной, но иногда несколько пренебрегаемой даже профессиональными иллюстраторами теме, как персональные проекты. Для чего они нужны? Как разнообразные персональные челленджи помогают не только развиваться, но и продвигать себя? Как выстроить баланс между количеством персональных и коммерческих работ в портфолио? Чему может научить работа над персональным проектом? В рамках этого рассказа я хотела бы показать один из таких своих проектов — The Poznaner, над которым я работала во время своего пребывания в Польше полгода.

Natania Leongson speaks about identity – the idea of the self, self-perception, and how people form an image of themselves that sometimes is what limits them instead of what encourages them to learn and push forward.  

She would like to give us the inspiration to shift their mindset about identity from it being a permanent or predetermined thing, to something more malleable and fluid. She challenges us to break free from the limitations of identity and embrace the plethora of possibilities that life is bursting with.

He describes the severe trials, tribulations, as well as how the challenge helped him grow and learn more about himself while on this one week, 250 km (155 mile) journey.


Using the Format at Conferences

The PechaKucha format goes beyond regular PechaKucha Nights, and we are often contacted about having one-off PechaKucha sessions as part of conferences or festivals, which we call "Powered by PechaKucha" events. Here's one planned for the Werklund School of Education's IDEAS: Rising to the Challenge conference in Calgary. This spring, a conference focusing on education innovation will be held on campus, and PechaKucha will figure prominently in the program. The conference, called IDEAS: Rising to the Challenge, will focus on creating opportunities for participants to inform each other’s work, to build on ideas and to challenge the ideas of learning and teaching. According to Brenda Gladstone, co-chair of the conference and Chief Operating Officer of the Galileo Educational Network, the two-day event is for innovators, designers, educators, academics, researchers and students (hence the acronym IDEAS). “Participants will build new knowledge networks,” says Gladstone. “These networks will focus on scholarship for teaching, in which research informs teaching and leading practices, and leading edge practices from the field inform research.” Read the rest of the article.

Perspectives Post PechaKucha

How does it feel like to attend a PechaKucha Night for the first time?   Katrina Jacobsen Jensen gave a compelling presentation on "Redefining Identity" at PechaKucha Maastricht Vol. 27.   She wrote a blog post about her first PechaKucha experience.     Although it sounds a little bit like a strange sneeze….. if someone asks you to be a part of a PechaKucha night….say YES!   This year in Maastricht, I attended my first PechaKucha evening (Japanese for "chit chat") and now I'm hooked!    I was requested to prepare a 6 minute and 40 second speech which would be accompanied by 20 slides shown in 20 second intervals. The standard PechaKucha format designed to keep speakers concise and on track.    After finalizing the outline and selecting my 20 images, I began practising my presentation with a timer. Well….back to the drawing board! Who knew that fitting a speech into 6 minutes and 40 seconds would be such a challenge?    For some it may seem like a very long time. For me however, it was not an easy task to get my story across in a relatively short time span while keeping it interesting and making sure the audience would be able to comfortably follow the content.      Through many modifications and countless trial runs, I fine tuned my presentation and was ready for the event. As the final speaker of the evening, I had the unique opportunity to enjoy the entire night from the audience before my name was announced.    My fellow presenters' topics ranged from art to business, travel, history, health, music and more. I liked that there was no specific theme and felt that the variety kept the night diverse and offered a full spectrum of knowledge. Something of interest for everyone present.      The evening made me more aware of all kinds of events taking place in my neighbourhood and people around me that I previously knew nothing about. What an excellent networking tool!     The response to my speech on "Redefining Identity" was very positive and seemed to inspire people, which of course in turn, inspired me. It gave me a chance to further connect with my intelligent, creative community while sharing some of my experiences.    With more than 700 cities worldwide hosting PechaKucha evenings, there is a good chance that one is near you. So despite the name triggering an urge to sneeze, if you're ever given the opportunity, be sure to be in attendance!        by Katrina Jacobsen Jensen
