“I will, I will succeed in life. To be well known, and to bring a new communication to graphic design. I know it will be hard work, with good and bad days but I will succeed.”
Today was one of my favourite lectures, on manifestos. At first I never knew the meaning of manifesto. But as Dr Mark Ingham started the lecture about the meaning of Manifesto, I then acknowledged the word manifesto. A manifesto is a public statement of principles and goals, which might also change the audience’s thoughts.
Then Dr Mark Ingham shared with us the famous speech of Martin Luther King, and then gave us a task to write our own manifesto. Martin Luther King started his manifesto with “I have a dream”. My best bit of Martin Luther King’s manifesto was “I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the colour of their skin, but by the content of their character.” I admire Martin Luther Kings manifesto because it gives me a great feel of hope and confidant, that he will complete his dream. I believe having a dream gives you more control on being successful in life.
I had the same rational like Martin Luther king; my manifesto is “I will, I will succeed in life. To be well known, and to bring a new communication to graphic design. I know it will be hard work, with good and bad days but I will succeed.” My intention was to repeat the word Succeed to give a positive impression to my manifesto.
We were then showed a video called Expressive typography (Futurist Manifesto), a short animation with typography. I found it quite interesting how words are shooting up towards the building crushing them on fire. Then at the end of the video showing new buildings built. But the way I see the, is the old nation ending and a new nation beginning.
Mark ended the lecture by showing us videos of Steve Jobs and Martin Luther King and Nancy Duarte: The secret structure of great talks. These videos were attention grabbing in there own ways. Another video that was great is of Martin Luther Kings Speech. The video that I thought was great is of Martin Luther Kings Speech.
I quite liked the video of Nancy Duarte who gave a presentation on the secret of great talk because she colour coded, where the lecturer would grab the audiences attention. She spoke about Martin Luther’s speech, and then linked the words where he repeated the same word.
