Mark Cooke

For PechaKucha Night in Tokyo Vol. 62, game developer Mark Cooke took up quite the challenge: create 10 games in 10 hours. His presentation was then based on the results, taking us on a tour of each experiment, revealing exactly what an hour of development time will allow you to design. The video above is a screencast version of the presentation, and below you'll find a live recording -- the quality is not as good, but you get a better feel for the kind of reaction that each game got from the record crowd. And that PechaKucha Night rhythm iPhone game? We liked it so much that we're already planning to do a proper PKN-branded version with Mark.

Animated Graphics for Australian TV, an Intro the Color Wheel, and a Doom Clock from Vladimir

Presentations Tim Costello has worked in Australia's television industry for the past 10 years, creating animated graphics for a variety of TV shows, which he shares in this presentation (from PKN Tokyo Vol. 93). He also worked on the feature film Where the Wild Things Are. In her presentation (in German, from PKN Aalen Vol. 6), Annegret Barth wants to introduce us to the interplay of colors. Using photos from nature, Annegret walks us through the development of the color wheel and its possible applications. (in German) We don't have a full presentation to share, but PKN Vladimir organizer Boris Matin has sent us the following photos (above) and description of this rather interesting participant at the city's recent Vol. 6.Sergei Karelin is a silversmith and goldsmith, a member of the Union of Artists of Russia, and an academic at the Petrovskaya Academy of Science and Art in St. Petersburg. The clock (in the photos) shows the countdown of the time from the moment of the Birth of the Earth to the moment of its collapse, owing to its inevitable approach to the Sun. The work calls for the drawing together of world religions, the union of all nations, and the immediate stop of all war conflicts in the face of the fatal disaster. Posters We have two new posters on the Tumblr blog today, one for this month's PKN Waterville Vol. 8 (pictured above), and one for PKN Chattanooga Vol. 11, also happening later this month.  Video Pisa's Vol. 2 is happening this Friday, and today we have a video promo to share for the event.  Calendar On this 4th of July, we may not have any PKNs happening in the US, but we do have these two events: PKN Amsterdam Vol. 22 and PKN Utsunomiya Vol. 1. Tomorrow, you can look for the following: PKN Semarang Vol. 9, PKN Augsburg Vol. 1, and PKN Las Palmas Vol. 7.

Back Cover

In today's Presentation of the Day, "Back Cover" from PKN Tokyo Vol. 95, French graphic designer Alexandre Dimos talks about Back Cover -- a magazine he and his small design studio put together as a labor of love. As he explains, he couldn't find what he really wanted to read, and so he helped create an independent magazine focusing on thinking and analyzing graphic design and typographic practices, and to a larger extent, visual arts.
