Graphic Design for Non-profit Organizations

Graphic Design for Non-profit Organizations

AisleOne reader, Sean Wol­cott, wrote in to tell me that Mas­simo Vignelli has given him per­mis­sion to dis­trib­ute a high-res PDF of his book, Graphic Design for Non-profit Orga­ni­za­tions. This rare book is by Vignelli and Peter Laun­dry, and was pub­lished in 1980 in part­ner­ship with AIGA. The book focuses on design and best prac­tices for non-profit orga­ni­za­tions, but the con­tent is a great resource in gen­eral and the teach­ings can be applied pretty much any­where. There are sec­tions on grids, typog­ra­phy, for­mats, logo­types, and color, just to name a few.

A big thank you to Mas­simo and Sean for mak­ing this valu­able resource avail­able to all.

You can down­load the PDF from here.
