The Vignelli Canon


We grew up with Massimo Vignelli and didn't even know it. That’s probably true for most of us since he was one of the most influential designers of the 20th century and his work was (and is) ubiquitous. But at our house at 45 Bannan Drive, every morning we ate cereal out of his Heller bowls. (Plates and mugs were used for lunch. Something more mundane [No offense, Mom.] was used for dinner.) These 112 pages do not simply contain a survey of Vignelli’s work. It’s also a succinct summation of his methods and philosophy.
