PechaKucha Night Valencia

Poster design.

I was invited to take part as speaker on the 21st edition of PechaKucha Night Valencia which took place during the Valencia Design Week. Also, I had the pleasure to design the poster for this edition.

As I’m a calligraphy & lettering specialist and I had complete freedom, I decided to create the entire poster with calligraphic elements done completely by hand, using flat brushes, metallic nibs and ink.
The idea was to build some resources in order to create a visual rhythm, playing with a 6 column grid and alternating dots and lines with the names of the speakers, all of them distributed on the 32 x 62 cm of the poster.

The spots were created using ink in order to get some textures that evoque lunar shapes, making reference to the nocturnal character of the event.
