On the 30th of November 2017 I spent time to articulate and produce my own Manifesto representing my key beliefs and motifs of my practice. The task was to create a 10 point Manifesto using InDesign exploring a use of two different Fonts. The fonts that I used was Avenir (a sans-serif) for the Title and Minion Pro (serif) for the numbered points.

To prepare myself for this task I used the guidance from the Typeface and Indesign resources used in the workshop with Georgina. The information usefully recommended fonts to use and warned to avoid certain over decorative fonts. This task helped to familiarise myself with using the software of InDesign that is tied closely to my book making practice. I also really liked revising over the advice and learning the skill of selecting fonts and understanding the art of creating visual relationships in the space with words, images and colour. I wanted my Manifesto to be simple yet appealing and meaningful. Which I feel the title typeface works well to suggest the simple instruction and its importance. I also included my illustrations of these words to appear as subtle bringing the attention more so to the words which I feel has worked well with the strength of the black font.

I can see how this Manifesto is very versatile and can be used as an aid to summarise and remind myself of the goals of my practice.
