Preparing for PechaKucha Night Phoenix 2015

preparing for PechaKucha Night Phoenix

On Friday, October 16th, 2015, I’ll be one of the speakers at the PechaKucha Night Phoenix. It’s kicking off Phoenix Design Week 2015 and will be held at The Duce in downtown Phoenix.

PechaKucha is a quick presentation of 20 slides that automatically change to the next slide after 20 seconds. The idea is that someone shares something they’re ideas, work, thoughts, etc. for 6 min 40 sec — keeping it short to inhibit long, droning presentations.

I was invited to talk about my approach, philosophy, toolsets, and processes, revolving around the idea of pushing beyond our comfort zones and taking our work to the next level. Heck, just getting up in front of a group to present is pushing beyond my comfort zone!

I love learning, so my plan is to share the things I’ve learned during my experience changing career tracks from graphic designer to product designer.

With the basic outline in place, next I’ll need to determine 20 photos that will help tell my story.
