In early 2012, we began inviting creative types around town to write a manifesto -- a personal list of 10 hard-and-fast rules of life or pieces of advice. Each manifesto was paired with a local designer who illustrated one lesson/rule in poster form.

We loved the Manifesto series so much that we decided to invite some of our favorite New Times writers to contribute their lists of rules for making your way through the food, art, shopping, and music scenes in Phoenix for this year's Resolution Guide.

Robrt Pela's Phoenix Shopping Manifesto (illustrated above by Phoenix designer Joshua Rhodes, aka Subtle Takeover) is in this week's print edition of New Times, along with words of wisdom and designs by a collection of Phoenicians. See Pela's advice after the jump and details on Jackalope Ranch's Manifesto exhibition, on view this Friday in downtown Phoenix.

Manifestos: Jackalope Ranch's Poster Show of Life Lessons and Rules by Phoenix Creatives

Sometime around January of last year, we got to thinking about manifestos.

Local designer Jill Anderson wrote one of her own and posted it to her Facebook page. It was simple -- 10 things she believes in and lives by every day.

We were curious to see what other local creatives would include on their lists.

Manifestos have a long history. They've been written for political and religious reasons; they've been used in declarations and novels. For the purpose of our series, we stuck to the basics and asked a handful of local creatives: What are 10 things that you live by, strive for, and have learned along the way?
