In this video created by Pentagram’s Michael Bierut and Aron Fay for Mohawk, Massimo Vignelli discusses his process of designing a book using a grid system. He draws out each page on paper, including the photos. To me this seems so inefficient, but it works for him. It’s so fascinating to get a glimps into his design process.
Along with the video a small limited edition journal with Vignelli’s grid from the film is printed on 100 interior pages made of Mohawk Superfine. You can get a copy of the journal from Mohawk. Got me one!
