Take a look at the grand opening celebration of the new Vignelli Center for Design Studies at RIT. The center becomes the home and permanent archive for the work of international designers Massimo and Lella Vignelli.
The Vignellis created the New York City subway signage, the interior of St. Peter’s Lutheran Church in New York City, the corporate identity programs for Xerox and American Airlines, and packaging programs for Bloomingdales and Saks Fifth Avenue, to name just a few of their designs.
The center will serve as a hub for design education, scholarship and research, expanding the scope of the programs offered through RIT’s School of Design. The school offers degree programs in Graphic Design, Industrial Design, Interior Design, New Media Design and Imaging and Computer Graphics Design.
