PechaKucha Night returns to Huddersfield for an evening of thinking and drinking – with a twist…
In this special edition, Dirt Cheap Magazine takeover Pecha Kucha Huddersfield to curate and present an eclectic night of presentations and live music from passionate local artists. A celebration of the hidden (and not so hidden) talents of Huddersfield.
PechaKucha Night #6 promises to be like no other. Advance booking is recommended.
For the night I have designed the promotional material including a poster, flyer and a special limited edition Dirt Cheap ‘Zine. Featuring a small collection of brilliant Dirt Cheap artists.
The finished poster design.
I cut and hand printed a lino print for the main artwork, and included all the essential information within the design. The design was made up on the spot without drafting a design, and the text all had to be done in reverse, so it was quite a challenge!
I wanted the images to be very direct and thought the eyes, ears and mouth summed up the whole idea of the night, an experience for all these senses. I wanted the piece to reflect my style and have a playful and DIY element to it, reflecting Dirt Cheap’s ethos.
Photos from the event, and more information on the zine will follow shortly! Hope to see you down there!
Thurs 23rd Feb, 8pm onwards, At The Media Centre, Huddersfield.
