Manifesto Design Dissenso (2019)

The Manifesto Design Dissenso is writen by the Design for Social Innovation class of 2019 at UTFPR. Students decided to write it after looking critically at their technical education and the lack of political perspectives. The manifesto was written and designed using several collaborative tools, such as clay, textiles, and Google Docs across several weeks of design research. The final version of the manifesto breaks with most of the visual conventions imposed by the colonialist design canon: regular grids, golden rules, transparent typography, white color as breathing space, low contrast, and consistency. With such heresies, the manifesto inaugurated the research on monster aesthetics at the industrial design department.
