I collaborated with the PechaKucha movement in Japan to develop a poster design for the upcoming ‘20 slides x 20 seconds’ event here in Lagos. People from various professions will each present a slide show exhibition of their work before an audience. The official logo of the event is shown below. PechaKucha means the sound of communication in Japanese.
The event is slated for Tuesday, 19th April at the TerraKulture Gallery, 1376 Tiamiyu Savage, V.i., Lagos State. The program commences by 6 pm and door charge is N2500. Proceeds from the program will benefit the rebuilding efforts in Japan as a result of the tragic March 11 disaster.
The final image is featured on the PechaKucha site. The Japanese national flag served as an inspiration for the design. The visual language communicates growth through love from far and wide. It’s uplifting to see support from the corners of the world, and through different means, to help rebuild the nation that through the years has inspired the world in innovation and creativity.
