Instant Manifesto Soup
Instant Manifesto Soup is a 180 page book packed with manifestos and essays written by influential designers. It features thought pieces by the likes of Stefan Sagmeister, Experimental Jetset, Anthony Burrill, among others. At the inception of this project, I was frustrated with the wordiness and daunting lengths of the manifestos. The majority of them were word stew.
I then picked out the best parts of the “stew” and turned it into more of a light “soup.” I adopted ramen noodle soup as the motif to appeal to young adults like myself. I packed the document with callouts and illustrations to allow for better flow and to give the reader mental breaks. Now the manifestos are easier on the noodle. The end result is simple, satisfying, and easy to digest; just like a bowl of soup.
