Local branding and initial poster for Pecha Kucha Night Amman, Dubbed "Dajeej" which is Arabic for "Noise"
Pecha Kucha is an international non-profit organization that seeks to encourage collaboration and the open sharing of ideas. PechaKucha Night was devised in Tokyo in February 2003 as an event for young designers to meet, network, and show their work in public.

It has turned into a massive celebration, with events happening in hundreds of cities around the world, inspiring creatives worldwide. Drawing its name from the Japanese term for the sound of “chit chat”, it rests on a presentation format that is based on a simple idea: 20 images x 20 seconds. It’s a format that makes presentations concise, and keeps things moving at a rapid pace.

Pecha Kucha Amman is an extension to the project which has been celebrated in hundreds of cities around the world. It’s a genuine contribution to social/cultural exchange patterns in Amman and a festival of creative ideas.... Let There Be Noise
the event was named Noise | ضجيج  to go hand in hand with the releaseof Interruptions magazine Noise edition. And for the obvious reason ofthe event being centered on a small number of very loud speakers presenting really noisy ideas.
If you're living in Amman or a country close by and you're interested in presenting at PKN Amman Vol. 1.
Please submit a short abstract and a few image references (including some of the work you hope to present on the night).

In the meantime, please visit for more information on the proposed 20 x 20 format (which will be strictly adhered to).
