Following on from my review of Warren Berger’s Glimmer I’m making available a printable version of the Manifesto so you can print it out, stick it up on your wall at work or have it handy to flip through.
Bruce’s Manifesto is thought-provoking and I think it very useful in helping designers move beyond the design-as-process mindset we can tend to get stuck in, especially in user experience where we have a fairly rigid process of research, conceptualisation, user testing, specification and implementation. I see too many designs that are confined to the most recent patterns or interaction paradigms of the latest hyped software.

I’ve also designed an enhanced version of the Glimmer Principles wheel with callouts and notes.

On the topic of manifestos, I found this great thought-provoking and inspirational manifesto the other day.
