Core Lab Typography: Manifesto: Ten Things I’ve Learned by Milton Glaser


A manifesto is a written statement declaring publicly the intentions, motives, or views of its issuer. For this project, I choose an existing historical manifesto, Ten Things I’ve Learned, and typeset it in the form of a calendar. By considering the historical context and the textual content, I believe that the format is a very appropriate method to display the manifesto visually. A calendar should cover 12 months in a year and there are only 10 separate things, therefore, two empty pages are necessary. They can also be intended as breaks. I am still following my design style which is applying many colors but at the same time offered the audience a visually comfortable and fresh feeling. Text is on each front page and the dates are on the back. The audience can clearly read both when flipping.
