Pecha Kucha 20X20

See the project live

For the sec­ond time, we did a com­plete redesign of the PechaKucha Night web­site, called PechaKucha 20X20. I was respon­si­ble of the whole design, and also worked on HTML/CSS integration.

For those who never heard about PechaKucha, here is what the site itself say:

PechaKucha 20x20 is a sim­ple pre­sen­ta­tion for­mat where you show 20 images, each for 20 sec­onds. The images for­ward auto­mat­i­cally and you talk along to the images.

We com­pletely rebuilt the sys­tem, and also made quite dras­tic changes to the global design and acces­si­bil­ity, try­ing to rethink infor­ma­tion hier­ar­chy and to sim­plify the design. We also inte­grated the blog to the global web­site, and added many new features:

  • You are now able to see pre­sen­ta­tions online, directly on the site.
  • You can now login with both your PechaKucha account or your Face­book one.
  • iCal export, to keep in touch with the calendar.
  • Geolo­cal­i­sa­tion: the site will dis­play events in your area in priority.
  • …and many small usabil­ity enhance­ment using Javascript/Ajax.
