100 Years of Design Manifestos

Social Design Notes have published 100 years of Design Manifestos from as far back as 1909 to the present.


These manifestos are public declarations of design principles and intentions. I created a tangible version of Bruce Mau’s manifesto that I can take with me on my travels.

I wonder who is really listening to these profound declarations…are they for the maker or the observer? It is time to create a new form of manifesto for the young designers of tomorrow? What could that look like?

Whose manifesto do you listen to? and when do you seek it out?
