I’m so excited to finally own a copy of Massimo Vignelli's The Vignelli Canon!

This excerpt is special for me because he eloquently explains what I realized back in my twenties. It was a pivotal moment for me to “see” what I do in a new light. It gave me purpose.

The discipline of design is one and can be applied to many different subjects, regardless of style [ … ] Very often people think that design is a particular style. Nothing could be more wrong.! Design is a discipline, a creative process with its own rules, controlling the consistency of its output toward its objective in the most direct and expressive way.

— Massimo Vignelli, The Vignelli Canon

You can download a PDF of The Vignelli Canon but the book is so much better!

May he rest in peace.
