The LEGION Manifesto

As you may or may not know, my line of workout supplements (LEGION) is launching very soon, and I wanted to create one of those nifty manifestos that all the cool kids have. :)

This is what I came up with. Would love to hear your thoughts in the comments below!

I’m Mike Matthews and I’ve been training for nearly a decade now. I believe that every person can achieve the body of his or her dreams, and I work hard to give everyone that chance by providing workable, proven advice grounded in science, not a desire to sell phony magazines, workout products, or supplements. More about me.

    This is great. Has a “THIS. IS. SPARTA!!!!” feeling to it.

    • Michael Matthews

      Thanks Dan! :)

  • Mary Tavernetti Trost

    I love it. The only recommendation I would make is to maybe use a different font for the We Disagree, We Resist.

    • Michael Matthews

      Thanks Mary! I see what you’re saying.

    too messy in my opinion, too many different fonts and too long, which makes it hard to remember, be also aware the the use of negative words in your manifesto may leed to a indirect association to your product. If you decide to use highlighted fonts make sure they spell something with a positive meaning so that it could be associated to your product in a positive way. Just my opinion

    • Michael Matthews

      Thanks for the feedback! I appreciate it!

  • Shanna Reinhardt

    I think it could be much shorter, in all presentation/training etc its hammered into you to only present 4 points per page. I think 4 points is all people can focus on at one time. Im also with red, the points should be positive. Love the feeling to it.

    • Michael Matthews

      Thanks for the comment Shanna! Generally speaking manifestos are a bit longer but I get where you’re coming from!

  • Scott

    Negative? No. It’s a wake up call. Anyone who gets a “negative ” message from this should go back to sitting on the couch and live out their mediocre unhealthy life. The people who would associate negativity with the wording is someone who most likely will not be using this product. You keep telling them how it is Mike!!! Looks great! Make it happen bro!

    • Michael Matthews

      Haha thanks Scott! I appreciate the kind words. And the matter of viewpoint is always interesting–I wasn’t trying to be negative at all, but I can see how people might take it that way.

    I really like it but I think it’s a little crammed and maybe too much in bold ( white) like bold words are those which are the “eye catching” ones but if there are so many like they kind of lose the effect
    And also the ” to” in ” to better ourselves” maybe try another format, I think if the only word you use the blue stripes writing for was “We” which appears quite a lot it would have a better effect ( so maybe in that section make the ” we” in ” we use it” in that format instead of “to”)
    And the last section ” we are few but we are not alone” I think try separating ” we are few” and ” but we are” so going like
    ” we are few
    But we are
    Not alone”
    And try a forma that might make it descend like a pyramid or like create a shape which breaks away from the pattern above so like it becomes a bit like the “summary”

    • Michael Matthews

      Thanks for the feedback! I agree that the visuals could be improved a bit.

  • Clara

    And maybe start it off with like a rhetorical question, that would establish the ” we” later mentioned, if you kind of get what I mean..
    And like I mentioned before about there being too much in bold and white, why not try like doing the verbs in bold like the ones you feel are important, or another formal you could try is like a different background for a particular word which contrasts with the word itself ( almost like a highlight)
    So verbs like ” resist, welcome, face, prove, better, forge, refuse, train, forget, hitting, pushing transcending” etc not necessarily all in white but if there was a sort of ” signature” for them, I think it’d be pretty sick, verbs are like the words the audience involve themselves in, if you kind of get what I mean, I don’t really know how to explain..
    Also the sections at the beginning about what others do, I think the formatting is slightly too similar to the later parts where things you do are listed ( eg: the section starting with ” all that matters”)
    Other formats you could try I think could be like italics, underline and although it’s blue and white like he blues could like vary in shades and the whites could like go into cream for like a few words

    This isn’t criticism it’s just like personal opinion, loads of people could disagree with me and I’m not like a pro in this area at all and I think the manifesto’s really really good

    • Michael Matthews

      Great comments. I like your ideas and definitely am going to get this re-worked…

  • Alon Rosner

    I loved it! Carried your point across with nice fonts and a smooth color combo.

    I’ve read many of your articles after discovering your website and I refuse to leave this place…. so much good information, all cited to credible sources.

    Once I run out of my current supplements, Legion will be mine.

    • Michael Matthews

      Thanks Alon! I really appreciate your support! Let me know how you like my products! :)
