Tribute to Massimo Vignelli
02 Apr 2015
As you probably know, Massimo Vignelli passed away a few months ago. With his wife Lella, he was one of the greatest 20th century designers. His talent was expressed as much in the field of graphic design in that of product design.
Today, many testimonials inspired by his work are showing up.
A small website recently appeared on the web. This site is dedicated to serve as an archival record of a first edition NYCTA Graphics Standards Manual designed by Massimo Vignelli of Unimark International. The manual was found in a locker beneath old gym clothes.

Moreover, in Spain, Husmee Studio Graphique organized a tribute exhibition 'Timeless/Massimo Vignelli'. The exhibition brings together posters by 32 national and international studios. Original works collected by Vignelli Associates and several furniture companies he designed for (Knoll, Heller, Poltrona Frau, etc.) are also shown.
Exhibition until April 18 2015
