Reflection on the Vignelli Canon

Posted on 

I found this article very interesting. Before reading this, I didn’t know who Massimo Vignelli was and what he was most known for. To the world today, he is most known for creating the New York City Subway map. (Which I later realize is similar to the DC Metro map). Another thing that he is most known for is creating the Helvetica typeface font.

One thing that stuck out to me was how he made different companies that designed totally different things. Everyday things like furniture, interior design, boxes, and typefaces. I guess why that stuck out to me is because he (and his wife) didn’t stick to designing just one thing. I became more and more interested in reading about Massimo and his creations and I would like to know more, I would like to know and see the other things that he has designed.
