Break the rules by
inventing new ones

Result of a 2 week workshop by Anja Kaiser.

As contemporary graphic designers we all build and rely on many rules. This manifesto serves as a tool to design against the graphic design rules. We question them by inventing our own rules and applying them in the design process. We dare you to allow yourself to fail, learn and to leave your comfortzone. We dare you to break the old rules by inventing new ones. 

size: Unknown.
media: riso, silkscreen and print 

︎This manifesto is designed by using the rules and applying those on posters of different sizes folded into a booklet with rules and the outcome. ︎
This manifesto can be used as a tool in the design
process or as an experimental tool.
You can download the rules here.
