BY MONICA HICKS
IN BROOME

Check out this light hearted story about retail design through Monica Hicks' eyes. Confessions from a Shopaholic, it is more than just buying things and maxing out your credit cards. It is about the shop design, shopping experience, customer service, and  product quality. And you also do not have to shop at high end lush brand name department stores. You can get the same experience from your local shops if you know where to look and what you know what you should expect.

An Affordable Alternative to Retail Chain Art

BY TOM LUYTEN
@ VOL 27 ON NOV 23, 2015

“We live in a global village but it turns out that all houses in the global village look the same, and I was kind of bothered with that.”

In An Affordable Alternative to Retail Chain Art from PechaKucha Night Maastricht’s 27th volume, Presenter Tom Luyten discusses one of his biggest issues when it comes to home decoration. Bothered by the fact that we live in a world full of living rooms with the same picture hanging above the couch, he created an alternative. Watch as Tom tells us how to create art that is both unique and affordable, without settling for lesser quality and still provide the artist with a sufficient compensation.

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Thursday, April, 21, 2016.
