Design Manifestos

Began reading manifestos as a part of the History and Philosophy of Design course, taught by Barry Katz at Stanford University. It was humbling to see so much of what I thought already described quite thoroughly by so many designers before me.

Goal: Write my own manifesto.

100+ Years of Design Manifestos

Some that spoke to me:


Design Education Manifesto:

Awesomeness Manifesto:

Manifesto for Sustainability in Design:

The Designer’s Dilemma:


The Design of Everyday Things

Start looking critically at every object that every makes me feel foolish, and every object that I can use the first time effortlessly.

Analyze what is going on in both objects. Take pictures, document. Maybe I will make a blog page devoted to these moments.
