Why you should read
“The Vignelli Canon”

The advices of a 79 years old designer.

I loved to read this book because it’s the written legacy of an old written four years before his death. This book by Massimo Vignelli, one of the most well know designer from the modernist “International Style” contains the advices from a grand father of graphic design to us. It’s a great lesson in simplicity, in making good work, and not running after the fame or the trends.
