The Vignelli Canon
The book suggestion of this week is The Vignelli Canon by the famous Italian designer and legend, Massimo Vignelli. In the book Vignelli shares a little bit about his design process and despite the fact it's focus on graphic design and visual identities, the lessons can be easily applied to any design project.
The famous Italian designer Massimo Vignelli allows us a glimpse of his understanding of good design in this book, its rules and criteria. He uses numerous examples to convey applications in practice - from product design via signaletics and graphic design to Corporate Design. By doing this he is making an important manual available to young designers that in its clarity both in terms of subject matter and visually is entirely committed to Vignelli's modern design.
