PPP : My Manifesto

My Manifesto February 2014

Today I presented my manifesto to half the year group with fead back from John and Brain. Looking back on past presentations I have presented very formal / cleanly laid out slides which made me decide to change things up a little.

A manifesto is meant to be quite personal, there I put together my slides based on a hand drawn list I photographed on note paper from my personal note book on some vibrant orange paper. In affect the presentation looked like a short stop motion as I flicked through the slides and elaborated further on each of my points.

Below are some quick photos I took & used in my presentation.
