We are 2 young designers (Bianca Borri & Alessio Piccini) in love with life, working at the funkyfreshfactory.com studio. The Manifesto has enhanced our idea to live our passion as the most important thing to follow. We love each other, work together and, after have seen the Manifesto’s video, we’ve decided to develop this project about typography linked with drum reefs (studied ad hoc by the jazz drummer Piero Borri). We were so excited that the whole project was ready to be showcased in 3 months at the international fashion fair Pitti Immagine Uomo 82. (We’ve done everything by ourselves, from the concept to the customization of the “typodrum”, to the ID cards, posters, the shooting & video editing.) The love we put into this project has been the same we got back from the crowd. Here you can get into our passionated adventure:  http://www.behance.net/gallery/typonotes-types-are-all-about-emotions/4704249 Now we’ve understand that in life everything is possible. All that you need is faith in what you are and what you’re doing. Just start.

Our Themes

Distilled from our Manifesto, positive psychology, the science of mindfulness, and ancient philosophic studies we have identified twelve themes core to living both fully and mindfully. We mapped these twelve themes to each of the twelve months in a year. Together with our community we explore one each month.
