Massimo Vignelli Makes Books

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!

  • Thanks for shar­ing the video, work of experts in any field is inspi­ra­tional for new com­ers. Although he uses old way of design­ing, but I think it’s good idea for new­bies. After draw­ing on paper, they have to do-little efforts to con­vert it to dig­i­tal media.
