Job: Pecha Kucha Charlotte Vol. 12
Client: Pecha Kucha
Art Director: Manoj Kesavan
Pecha Kucha Charlotte approached Melody to create a poster, promo card and buttons to promote their 12th Pecha Kucha Charlotte event. Held at the Mint Museum uptown, Pecha wanted to show the iconic Mint Museum building on the poster.
Melody's concept was to depict a dreamlike or make believe quality to the materials, conveying a sense of creative imagination the arts inspire, the thinking "anything is possible".
PechaKucha Night, now in over 800 cities, was devised in Tokyo in February 2003 as an event for young designers to meet, network, and show their work in public.
Pecha Kucha is a presentation style in which 20 slides are shown for 20 seconds each (6 minutes and 40 seconds in total). Most presenters are design professionals showing their creative work, but presenters often speak about such topics as their travels, research projects, student projects, hobbies, collections, or other interests.
