PK Posters: San Diego Vol. 17

San Diego's Vol. 17 was one of 10 PechaKucha events to coincide with PechaKucha's 10 year anniversary this past February 20th. Urbanist has a short write-up of that event, here's a snippet of what they had to say:

The evening [was] emceed by Grant Barrett, co-host and co-producer of NPR’s nationally syndicated radio program A Way With Words, and features speakers such as Peter McConnell of 3rdSpace, speaking about San Diego Unseen, a new book of SD photos by San Diegans; Barbarella Fokos, perhaps best known for her weekly column in The Reader, who has revealed that her presentation is titled “Happy Endings: A Dominatrix’s Guide to Business Relations”; Samantha Ollinger, the executive director of Bike San Diego, which aims to “promote a world-class biking infrastructure” by encouraging everyday riding; artist Joshua Krause, who recently exhibited at Parachute Factory and Subtext – as well as other equally talented and diverse presenters.

This atmospheric, etheareal poster was created for PKN San Diego by the very talented designer Charles Bergquist. For more of his work, check out his web presence.

About the City's Organizers

  • Margit Whitlock

    Let’s come together to transform the status quo to the status whoa... Founded in 1978, The San Diego Architectural Foundation (SDAF) is a nonprofit organization dedicated to the education and promotion of outstanding architecture, landscape, interior, and urban design to improve the quality of life for all San Diegans. We do this by curating exceptional events throughout the year that are open to both the design industry and the public at large. We explore how the issues impact our growing region, like the design of our homes, workplaces, schools and communities, as well as our health and well-being. Our goal is to inspire all San Diegans to discover the value of thoughtful design in the natural and built environment and the effect it has on the quality of our lives.
