2022 Manifest

Manifest 2022 Merch designed by 2022 Manifest Creative Director, Thais Centeno

About the design:
Manifest 22’ is inspired by the style of Brutalism. Brutalism is meant to rebel against traditional design systems. It’s bold, unapologetic, daring…and intentionally creates a disoriented, raw feel. I want people to feel empowered and to spark a feeling. This year’s theme is a collection of words: synthesize, connection, togetherness, growth, evolution, beauty, to name a few. All of these words were mentioned when deciding the theme for this year, I decided to embrace these different feelings and incorporate them as whole. I enjoy playing around with textures and layering to represent movement and energy.
