Pecha Kucha is a challenging speaking format, originally from Tokyo, that gathers ten local creatives from all walks of life. Pentagram Austin designs a custom, silk-screened poster for each of the events which are staged at a variety of unique venues around town. The concepts of the posters take their clue from the personalities of the different locales where the events are held.
Pecha Kucha 20 was held at The Contemporary, Austin’s contemporary art museum, so the poster features an image of a gallery with parts of the speakers’ faces comprising a single face. From there we had to track down photos of everyone and arrange and rearrange all their different parts to see what made the best face.
