Hey folks, I’ve been out of town for the last few weeks, which is why it’s been quiet around here. But I’m back and the posts will be back on a regular schedule.
Timeless: Massimo Vignelli is an exhibition curated by design studio Husmee, and Beatriz Cifuentes and Yoshiki Waterhouse, that honors the work of Massimo Vignelli. It’s open now until April 18, 2015 at the Okendo Cultural Centre in San Sebastián, Spain.
The exhibition includes original work from Vignelli and a series of posters designed by a select group of designers and design studios, that include Atlas, Toko, BVD, Hey Studio, Mash Creative, and Spin.
The lovely poster above was designed by Mash Creative.
SuperWarmRed Designs, founded by former Vignelli Associates Beatriz Cifuentes and Yoshiki Waterhouse, is offering limited-edition signed and unsigned 36” x 45” posters of the MTA New York City Subway Diagram, designed in 2012 by Massimo Vignelli, Beatriz, and Yoshiki for the MTA’s Weekender website and app.
The 2012 version is based on Vignelli’s iconic 1972 subway map, but it’s been updated based on satellite data, and improved for better legibility. The poster is printed in Pantone and Hexachrome inks on acid-free archival cover-weight paper.
SuperWarmRed Designs will also be releasing a series of six posters designed by Vignelli Associates, that feature tight crops of the New York City Subway Diagram. The set will be printed in Pantone inks on acid-free archival cover-weight paper and will be sold as a set. Look for this series soon.
I really love the detail series. Hoping the set will be reasonably priced.
Massimo Vignelli passed away this morning. I can’t even begin to explain how much of an influence he was on me. I wouldn’t know half of what I know about design if it weren’t for him. I will continue to learn from Massimo for years to come. He will be missed, but his work will live on for generations.
Riposi in pace, Massimo.
Massimo Vignelli turned 81 years old today. His work and ideas on design have had a huge influence on me. I thank him so much for that. Thank you, Massimo.
A simple site that takes you through a brief history of the world’s largest design firm, Unimark International. Founded by Ralph Eckerstrom and Massimo Vignelli, Unimark only lasted 13 years but some of the most famous corporate identities were born behind its doors. My favorite is the work done for Memorex.
This classic Knoll poster that was originally printed in 1999 is being made available in a limited run 250 next month. Printed by K2 Screen, it’s screen printed on A0, 175gsm, Ebony Colorplan paper.
You can pre-order a copy at Blanka.
