The other night at the drive in - between shows I made the mistake of checking my facebook news feed. Sharon had posted about her manifesto making. I swear I don't remember 3/4s of the movie because every chance I got ( ie when the girls weren't looking) I was madly clicking through following her links. There is a lovely gallery of them here.
It just spoke volumes to me. Seriously sometimes I have to be hit across the back of the head to get the message.
I have seen this one before - I have it printed actually as postcards to send out to some friend.
Last week I spoke with a colleague about a work manifesto and an idea that he had for our SFD.
Last month I spoke with a friend about designing a business and how all business needed a manifesto of sorts to explain what they stood for. I actually used those words manifesto.
But for some reason I never put that together with writing my own. Hello ?? Honestly if I was anymore asleep I wouldn't be breathing!
So back to the story I read and read and then started jotting notes on my phone - a jimble jumble of words. Edited and edited and voila here is mine.
I used photoshop to create it. Mine is going up at work and I'm putting a second copy here at my desk.
If you would like your own manifesto but creating stuff digitally makes you break out in hives then flick me an email with the words that you'd like and the colour(s) that you'd like and I will whip it up for you in no time. All you have to do is print :)
I think we all should have a little plan for how we want our 2013 to look don't you ?
