Hi! My name is Kay and I’m the Chief Visionary and Leader of the global Type A Tribe. Please help me create a manifesto that will be downloaded by millions of America’s most accomplished citizens!
I want a super-talented designer to help me transform America’s Type A Tribe Manifesto into a visually engaging and compelling piece that Type A individuals will be proud to display in their offices and share online via social media. My goal is to have a such a fantastic design for America’s Type A Manifesto that millions of Americans are clamoring to get it and share it with their friends, families and co-workers. I want America’s Type A Tribe Manifesto to be posted in the home of every Type A individual in America.
The mission is to reframe the Type A image as positive and instill a strong sense of pride in being a member of the Type A Tribe. I want to dispel the pervasive negative and one-sided stereotype that characterizes the Type A personality as an impatient, irritated and hostile individual who is prone to be a workaholic and who suffers from chronic stress and increased risk of heart attacks and other health issues. These negative attributes are only one potential component of the Type A personality and are not significantly present in many of the very successful Type A people. The positive Type A personality attributes have been completely overshadowed by this negative publicity which has led to many Type A individuals being hesitant to admit that they are Type A personalities. That has to change. Failing to acknowledge the profoundly positive attributes of the Type A personality is like throwing the baby out with the bath water.
Here’s the real deal. America needs its Type A individuals. They are America’s movers and shakers. They get things done. They are driven to be their best and achieve the best. It’s time we celebrated their accomplishments and contributions that have made America great. Type A individuals include business executives, physicians, lawyers and professors, leaders in the non-profit and government sectors, philanthropists, sports stars and powerhouse celebrities. Well known Americans who exhibit Type A personality traits are George Washington, John Adams, Thomas Edison, Abraham Lincoln, Amelia Earhart, Oprah Winfrey, Steve Jobs, Donald Trump and Serena Williams.
Here are some my wishes for America’s Type A Tribe Manifesto:
America’s Type A Tribe Manifesto is the first of many Type A Tribe Manifestos. Eventually, we will have a Global Type A Tribe Manifesto and manifestos for each country around the world. For example: Italy’s Type A Tribe Manifesto, Brazil’s Type A Tribe Manifesto, South Africa’s Type A Tribe Manifesto. As such, we need America’s Type A Tribe Manifesto to be consistent with the Type A Tribe global brand while also having some country-specific design element (such as the American flag, Mount Rushmore or the Statue of Liberty) that makes it uniquely American. Ideally, the master manifesto design will allow for a country-specific design element to be dropped in for each country as each new manifesto is created. The ultimate goal is to have all of the manifestos reflecting both the global brand AND the unique country the manifesto represents.
The design needs to be visually powerful and uplifting while conveying a strong sense of pride, possibility and positive energy. It needs to be visually engaging without being overwhelming to the reader’s eye. It needs to be easy to read and it must grab the reader’s attention.
It must include the Type A Tribe logo. Those files are uploaded for you. I have also uploaded the word version of the manifesto.
It must include the following: © Kay Cannon, Inc. 2013 ● Type A Tribe™ ● http://www.TypeATribe.com
Ideally, in addition to the country-specific design element which may be in different colors, the manifesto will include the Type A Tribe brand colors of Pantone numbers 429C, 1945C and Black 6C.
It should look good in color, as well as black and white. It should look good in various sizes, in an online format and in a print format.
Some manifestos that I like are:
