Contemporary Narratives

Editorial Design -
Shanghai, China 2013.


Manifesto is a bilingual publication of Design Republic, one of the biggest design furniture retailer in China. It’s goal is to promote aesthetics and design awareness among potential and existing clients.

Issue 019 had a theme of "Contemporary Narratives".

People throughout history and in all cultures have come to form their own identity through some kind of narrative form. From cave drawings to classical literature to video games and pop songs, we are inveterate storytellers.

In this issue of Manifesto, we look not only into the stories, or the reasons we tell them, but also to focus on how contemporary narratives are constructed. What formats they can exist in and what are the tools that we use to construct and share a narrative.
