the Vignelli Canon


We just got sent this from a friend (yes, we’re a little behind).   Vignelli has graciously published (yes, for free pdf download here), the Massimo Vignelli Canon.  We don’t actually engage much with the two-dimensional here, but still, it’s great to have some insight to an influential and important designer’s work.

“Creativity needs the support of knowledge to be able to perform at its best…”

“That beautiful feeling of enrichment that comes from new discoveries, new ways of doing the same thing better than before…”
