City Focus: Taipei

This week, we are traveling in part to an ancient, dried out lakebed to visit Taipei for our City Focus. Home to just under three million residents, Taipei stands as the cultural, political, educational and economic hub of its host country, Taiwan. The city is filled with culture and incredible food, as well as many unique architectural feats like the National Chiang Kai-shek Memorial Hall and Taipei 101, the former tallest building in the world. The skyline of the city provides breathtaking views in the night like the one pictured here, with lights of all different colors that shine bright for all to see.

What's more, they are hosting their Vol. 40 event at the end of August on the 31st, you will not want to miss it!

PKN Poster Spotlight: Gisborne

PechaKucha Night Gisborne really turned it on for this week's PechaKucha Poster Spotlight! This work of art was created by Kahu Ngata (kahu_ngata on Instagram), and features a cartoon-style drawing that feels laid-back but playful at the same time. The poster has a solid purple background, with a television headed person wearing an oversized yellow heart sweatshirt telling us details about the event, how convenient! It is a simple yet fun design with a color scheme that catches the eye immediately. With a poster like this, Gisborne's Vol. 22 event on the 23rd of August will surely be something you want to see! Good luck Gisborne, and thanks for the awesome poster!
