First Things First Manifesto
FIRST THINGS FIRST MANIFESTO


The first Manifesto was published in 1964 by Ken Garland and other designers, photographers 
and students. Its aim was to react against the British society of the 1960s, by rushing against 
the fast and banal productions of mainstream advertising. 
It had become necessary to focus on the role that design could play to improve education, 
public services and society. The Manifesto would then be updated and published by a new group 
as First Things First 2000.
The project wants to give a personal interpretation of the texts through designing 
an effective layout. It was essential to take care about some restrictions, including: the use of only one font, the use of only black color, a defined size 
and number of pages. 

This project uses AKZIDENZ GROTESK in its MEDIUM cut, using a grid of six by six units. The typeface was used in three different sizes to express in different ways the fundamental concepts of the Manifesto.
