PechaKucha, Japanese for “chit-chat,” or, more beautifully said, "the sound of conversation" is a quick-moving presentation style created by Tokyo architects Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham who were searching for a way to encourage their student presenters to reimagine the traditional, text-heavy and slow-moving PowerPoint and instead focus on a tight narrative and powerful visuals.
20 seconds per slide and 20 slides total. It’s that simple. And it’s that hard.Inspired by its creators and the global movement they’ve inspired, this summer Langrand hosted a Summer PechaKucha Lunch Series, where we invited a few teammates to present on a subject of their choosing—and they chose some interesting ones! From creative side projects to the ins-and-outs of image rights to the rich music history of their hometowns and the power of a brand's name—Langranders are experts on a wide variety of topics. It was a wonderful way to connect, learn from each other and keep it moving.
We’re excited to extend the series into the fall and hear from the rest of the Langrand Team. More to come!
