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!

  1. 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.
