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?
