Here’s four ways to design your manifesto so it’s visually appealing…

Four Manifesto Visuals

1 Literal: The US Declaration of Independence

Nothing fancy in the design here. It is what it is. It’s a handwritten note signed by those in agreement. It’s powerful in it’s purity and simplicity.

2 Words: LuluLemon

Collect your words and display them in a co-ordinated way. Simple, attractive and effective.

3 Iconic: Obama

If a typical picture is worth a thousand words, then this iconic image is worth a million votes. It’s by Shepard Fairey. By itself it would have been meaningless. Instead, it stands on the shoulders of existing knowledge. And it became the visual symbol of Obama’s Presidential Campaign.

4 Graphic: The Cult of Done

No words here. Perhaps it’s a little cryptic and it is aiming to represent the manifesto visually.
