Mannifest Branding

Logo design and branding work for collaboration with a friend on charity based project. is passionate about helping people to get involved with activism and volunteer work. With a tailor made social media platform, that ensures the user can achieve this with minimal effort. This is the main objective, everything should be aimed at this. This is what we should constantly refer back to.
The key elements of the branding focused on free speech and coming together.
After a year of watching activist videos on social media, our founder, Izak Jackson noticed that there were thousands of people commenting on these videos about how they want to get involved in social activism, but don’t know where to start. That's how he came up with the idea for 

Our social media platform will allow activists to sign up, select types of causes they are interested in and then view activist and charity pages based on their choices. Here they can find out information about laws, culture and trends within their causes of choice, and will also be able to join these causes. Each causes page will feature an events system, the ability to talk to other members of the group and more. Causes can even send out direct mail to the activists in order to inform them about new events or changes etc.

Our goal is to give the general public a platform for them to share their voice and join others who share their ideas!

Exploration of typefaces.
Two slightly different typefaces demonstrating two potential routes, left being younger and right being more academic.
Gradients represented change and also made for a colourful and visually appealing aesthetic.
