Massimo VIGNELLI
-----
Massimo Vignelli (born 1931 in Milan, Italy) is a designer who has done work in a
number of areas ranging from package design to furniture design to public
signage to showroom design through Vignelli Associates, which he co-founded
with his wife. Vignelli works firmly within the Modernist tradition, and focuses on
simplicity through the use of basic geometric forms in all of his work.
In January 2009,
Vignelli released
The Vignelli Canon
as a free e-book.
In the introduction Vignelli
writes, "I thought that it
might be useful to pass
some of my professional
knowledge around, with the
hope of improving [young
designers'] design skills.
Creativity needs the
support of knowledge to be
able to perform at its best."
