Be the Box Manifesto

We were assigned to create a manifesto for our student design company pentaroom.
We did a set of 11 guidelines and presented our manifesto in the shape of a Box with our brand colour palette.

Assignment while doing the MCAST Art & Design Students - BA (HONS) Graphic Design & Interactive Media 2012 - 2013
In our manifesto we discussed the 'set of rules' that pentaroom as a design company has to follow in order to create and have the best design solutions. We did a set of eleven guidelines that each and every one of us must follow. We presented our manifesto in the shape of a Box and named it “Be the Box.” 

These are the set of guidelines we came up with.

Unleash your ideas
Don’t be afraid to share your ideas, they might be good and they might not. Sketch each and every idea on papers.

Are you watching closely?
Are you paying full attention in what you are doing, giving it as much time and detail as possible? Don’t be afraid to look at other peoples work and be inspired.

We are addicted to be addiction
We are willing to be so good that we need others to be addicted to us.

Open Closed Doors
Don’t be afraid to try new things, it you fail you fail but at least you tried.

Discover. Create. Share.
One needs to make research and discover what there is in the market at the moment, then when the idea is generated and created - share it.

A designer can make a blind man see.
A designer can make other people open to new ideas.

Make mistakes. Find Solutions.
Everybody makes mistakes. These will help you to improve your product and succeed, those who never make mistakes have never tried anything new.

Knowledge makes things simpler
The more you know, the simpler things will be. It is important to read and have a good knowledge about your job.

The bliss of design is not knowing,what happens next.
Sometimes you could have an idea in mind that when you continue to develop it you will notice that your idea had changed and end with a different product.

Bind technology with creativity
Nowadays apart from the fact that it is important to sketch and use your hands in design, it is also important to use technology because it is simpler and time consuming.

If you are not tired you are not doing it right
You have to keep on working hard on what you and get tired of doing it.
