Visiting exhibitions has lead me towards designers that channel the same values and ideas in their work as my own. It has revealed to me some values and intentions that I had not fully recognised in my work before. This led me to compile my own list of principles that I can refer back to.

My Manifesto                                                                                                                                         and the designers that inspired each point.

I want my products to be stylish yet functional – (Pierre Renart, Andrea de Chirico)

It is important that my products are sleek yet minimalistic, as I enjoy simple and effective designs – (Ashrad Hanna, Sori Yanagi)

I want to bring cultures togeather, slowly closing the gaps between Western and Asian society, creating a strong connection between the two. This will encourage a flow of cultural knowledge. – (Sori Yanagi)

I want the production of my pieces to be easy, perfect for the mass market. I don’t want them to be one off pieces of art – (Oliver Van Herpt)

I am aware that it is important to be mindful of a product’s carbon footprint and sustainability. In this new world, it is necessary that products have a positive impact on our environment- (Andrea de Chirico)

By visiting these exhibitions it has really highlighted to me that I have a strong set of values that appear repetitively throughout my work, and only by looking at other designers values have I realised that I have my very own set that I feel strongly about.

By creating my own manifesto to look back on it allows me to be more conclusive and effective with my designing.
