First Things First

A Graphic Designer's Manifesto

manifesto.jpg

In the year 2000, graphic designer's renewed the original call for skills that was written in 1964. This assignment was based around those ideals. My idea for this poster was to create a propaganda poster for this topic. I felt the manifesto was calling for some type of revolution in design, and I wanted to represent that. I did this by creating a central image that would stand out, and catch peoples eye. I wanted other designers to know the topic when they immedietly saw the poster. The visual hieracy of this poster starts with the headline, "First Things First", then moves to the image, which I feel represents what is discussed in the final part of the poster, and that is the manifesto itself. I wanted to it in the style of a propaganda poster to call other designers attention to the issues discussed. Also the propaganda poster would focus this poster to a select target audience, that being other designers who have a background in histroical graphic design.

Cole,
I really liked your poster design. It's very clean and powerful. I think the images work really well with what the manifesto had to say.

I really like the pumping fist as the focal point of this work. This is a strong piece in my opinion and the layout works well. I think that this was one of the better assinments to work on in this class even though we only spent a week on it.

Cole, I think out of all the manifestos that were presented in our class, I really like yours the best, because I feel that your whole image concept idea goes well with what a real manifesto should be about. I also like the quality of the image, which makes it so different from all of ours. Nice job on this assignment!

You need it. Believe me.

I am so happy to read this. This is the type of manual that needs to be given and not the accidental misinformation that's at the other blogs. Appreciate your sharing this best doc.
