Don Quijote price with the Isetan shopping experience


Itent on melding the convenience of Japan's favorite everything-store Don Quijote, and the luxurious experience of Isetan, Will Stockwell, Megumi Shiobara, Reinis Udris, and Hideo Chikaike try to capture the essence of what makes each retailer unique. 

Avoiding the cramped space, poor service and long lines of Don Quijote, people rather pay the extra cash for better experience. What shoppers really want, are brand products without the feeling of shopping a mosh pit, and without the heavy price tag.

Spike Spondike

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? DAC is a socially responsive, practice-led research centre located at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, University of the Arts London.

An Artspace in Dallas, Rediscovering Old Genoa, and PK Goes to Frederikshavn

Presentations Zad Roumaya uses his presentation (from PKN Dallas Vol. 10) to introduce Artspace, a platform with the goal of supporting artists and their work, and more specifically covers the recently opened Dallas location. Faced with a contemporary situation characterized by daily complaints on the immobility of Genoa and of the Genoese, it arouses astonishment to rediscover in the dawn of the last century, an astonishing concentration of technological experimentation, avant-garde architecture, and urban visions. Discover this "Old Genoa" in Jacopo Baccani's presentation (in Italian, from PKN Genoa Vol. 3). Posters Today's addition to the Tumblr blog is the poster for Salt Lake City's upcoming Vol. 8 (on October 22), designed by Dan Christofferson, a presenter from a previous PKN. The event itself will be part of Salt Lake Design Week.  Event Report PKN Aalborg organizer Annette Scheibel has been spreading the PK word by organizing one-off PechaKucha events in nearby towns -- one of those one-off events has already resulted in the start of a regular series -- and here's a report she's shared with us on the recent "Powered by PechaKucha" event that was held in Frederikshavn.We had an absolutely awsome one-time-try-out-PechaKucha event in Frederikshavn last night, at Maskinhallen. A full house with an enthusiastic audience and a forceful and inspiring lineup of local participants extremely well hosted by the local Jens Ole Amstrup. As an arm up, he had organized a dinner completely made of local grocery and crops -- inspired and challenged by the first participant Frank Stjerne Størup, who is a local cook with a restaurant specialising in making seafood and vegetable dinners from food grown in the area. A local jazz musician and music school headmaster talked about improvisation, creativity, and openness. Tove Varmløse shared a new way of shopping through the internet AND donating to a charity of your own choice at the same time -- a team of volounteers organizing the whole thing. A local laughter-coach demonstrated to the audience and talked about the healthy effects of laughing -- a good appetizer before the break. Local architect Finn Rasmussen is a very eager bicyclist, and he talked about the health effects of using legs for transport instead of cars -- and creating a new business through tourism at the same time. Graphic designer Anders Budolf Andersen took us through his play-with-it and evolve-design of carton boxes, and created a new philosophy on innovation -- finding out what had already been done before, and getting back to creativity! 18 year old talented artist Nanna Guldbæk talked about how she finds inspiration for her work from life experiences. We finished off by showing street artist Smelt Migs' PechaKucha video in 20X20 about why he makes art in the streets of his city, Frederikshavn. Wow, what an evening!!!Calendar Here's what to expect tonight (October 11): PKN Salzburg Vol. 14, PKN Regensburg Vol. 10, PKN Augsburg Vol. 2, PKN Norrkoping Vol. 20, PKN Utrecht Vol. 5, PKN Omaha Vol. 16, PKN Kyiv Vol. 9, and PKN Katowice Vol. 8. Tomorrow, we have the following four events: PKN Bogota Vol. 9, PKN Longmont Vol. 8, PKN Pune Vol. 6, and PKN Seattle Vol. 39.

Design Against Crime

What if your chair could prevent theft? In today's Presentation of the Day "Design Against Crime" from PKN London Vol. 1, designer at the Design Against Crime Research Centre Spike Spondike argues that designers and criminals have a lot in common: they look for opportunities, they're risk-inclined, and they have a "wonky way of thinking." She asks: 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?


Why I couldn't let PKN_COV die

There's been a lot of sad tweets recently about horrific things happening in our world, and Pecha Kucha has been one of the little ways I've used to remind myself the world is still goodish. So, when Janet tweeted that the most recent PK might have to be the last in Coventry I DM'd straight to action. I barely have anything to do in my spare time (apart from help run Big Comfy Sessions and host/promote gigs across the city ;o) so a DM to Janet asking if any additional help would keep PK alive. Luckily I wasn't the only one to offer help so it didn't take long for a new PK Coventry organising committee to be formed. Janet is and always will be our Queen but she now has several court jesters in the form of myself (@mr_spoon), Dom Breadmore (@predacomDom) and Ross Fisher. Our job is to help Janet book presenters, and basically anything else she needs. But it's the presenter line-up that I expect takes the longest time, without presenters we'd either have no PK in Cov or we'd have to sit through yet another Mark Hancock presentation and no-one wants that. I know how hard it is to persuade people to expose themselves for 6 minutes and 40 seconds as I hold the award for second longest to take up the challenge. Despite my fetish for organising gigs and gatherings I don't like being the centre of attention, and PK is a special kind of attention. I never felt I had a right to be on stage alongside creatives, artists, eloquent presenters and inspirational geeks. However after a few PKs I started to see more 'normals' drift onto the stage. Some of the best presentations I've seen have been about the mundanity of shopping, favourite books and a Wi-Fi rabbit. Hang on a second, I thought...I STILL don't want to do this...but I can bully others into volunteering. I'm glad I finally popped my PK cherry during the most attended one ever (d'oh) hosted by Ludic is very much like giving birth (I know, I've suffered through two of them ;o), in that I didn't enjoy the experience but I have a happy heart and badge of honour after doing it. PK in Coventry is a wonderful pot pourri of an evening, with squishy settees, that unmistakable Tin fragrance, laughter and friends...and let's not deny, a cheap night of entertainment and inspiration. You can't argue with that. I hope that by helping keep Pecha Kucha going in Coventry that more people get the chance to experience that awkwardness of a confusing, badly timed, strange, fumbled presentation and maybe even get drunk enough to volunteer for the next one. I've already used my 'power' to sign up two frolleagues and a handful of new audience members that think it sounds fun. So right they are!  See you in December!!

She has also been a host on KRTU's Indie Overnight for 10 years.

All in the name of Travel, we walk through different corners of streets, countrysides and even all across the globe, and leave behind our trails of existence. No matter if we are just roaming aimlessly or rushing during our destinations, what catches our attention is based on our own preferences or habits. Therefore, the way we travel and the route of our journeys thus is reflected in the facades of our life. What we fall in love with during our travels, those precious moment only belongs to ourselves when we travel. We easily reminiscence with the unique inspirations and memories that come along with every single trip. in turn, believe that each profession or passion is a reflection of our own life...
