Seven Manifestos for a Better Tomorrow

The times we live in are interesting for sure. We crossed the consumerist point of no return a while ago, and have not turned back since. Decisions everywhere are being driven by profitability and patterns of consumption, and patterns of consumption are driven by the creation of a desire to accumulate more and more. As designers, we are key players in this ecosystem of desire, but we seek to shift the narrative from ruthless consumption to a conscious and more mindful one.


We seek to create a shift from a Hierarchical definition of needs which places some things above others to a more holistic, more humane understanding of needs and wants.

For which, we propose seven manifestos- one each for a key necessity for life.
We created a web-based publication to share these manifestos with the world, with the text of our manifestos, and animated illustrations to complement the text. 
Animated Illustrations created for each theme- Air, Water, Food, Shelter, Health, Energy, and Security.
