PechaKucha Night Future City

Last weekend Hello was invited to PechaKucha night for Little Tokyo Design Week (LTDW) where our CEO/Creative Director, David Lai joined the lineup of 48 speakers as they presented for 2 minutes each with 6 images in 20 seconds revolved around the topic, “future city.”

David’s talk explored a future city with inspiration from childhood imaginings where flying bikes and good robots could exist in an environment that interacts and reacts to our needs.

To kick things off with our newest client, the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles, Hello was invited to take an early tour of their new Dinosaur Hall. The hall’s collection of dinosaurs is amazing and we were excited to meet Thomas the T. Rex.




The Natural History Museum family also includes the Page Museum at the La Brea Tarpits that houses the world’s largest and most diverse collections of Late Pleistocene fossils. The NHM’s mission is to inspire wonder, discovery and responsibility for our natural and cultural worlds and we can’t wait to collaborate with them.

Little Tokyo Design Week


Join us this Saturday as Hello’s CEO/Creative Director, David Lai takes part in Pecha Kucha night, a series of presentations given by 48 leading contemporary voices in design and architecture as part of Little Tokyo Design Week (LTDW).

PechaKucha Night

Pecha Kucha (meaning “chit chat” in Japanese) started off as an event for young designers to meet and share their work with the public, but has now become a massive celebration where hundreds of events take place in different cities around the world, like St. Petersburg to Nagoya to Leeds. The theme of this Saturday’s Pecha Kucha night is based on the idea of “Future City,” where presentations will focus on visionary cities and city life. We’re excited to hear from the great roundup of speakers, especially Hitoshi Abe, architect and chair of both LTDW and UCLA Architecture and Design.

Pecha Kucha Night starts at 8:00 pm this Saturday ( 7/16) at the JACCC Plaza in Little Tokyo – come by earlier for food trucks and music!
