D&AD Pecha Kucha night


Last night we hopped on the train and headed up to catch one of the d&ad's president lectures. It was a pecha kucha night which means a list of speakers with 20 slides, which only lasts 20 seconds each. The format allows you to pack in loads of great presentations in bite size chunks. The speaker's approaches included inspiration, recent work, people they admire and sleep walking. Well worth the time and money.

It was a completely packed event. Easily more than 400 people drinking and listening. Great to see so many people out from behind their computer screens and mixing in the world with one another. Over all it was one of the best design events i've been to, certainly the best d&ad event i've been to. Loads of really passionate people with lot's of funny and heart warming revelations.
