Vignelli Canon

The famous Italian designer Massimo Vignelli allows us a glimpse of his understanding of good design in this book, its rules and criteria. He uses numerous examples to convey applications in practice — from product design via signaletics and graphic design to Corporate Design. By doing this he is making an important manual available to young designers that in its clarity both in terms of subject matter and visually is entirely committed to Vignelli’s modern design.

About the Artist
Rochester Institute of Technology

The Vignelli Center for Design Studies leads through practice and programs in the interpretation of quality design. We strive to inspire widespread recognition of how the artifacts we collect, preserve and understand broaden and enrich life. We do so as stewards of the legacy of Massimo and Lella Vignelli, who valued excellence, creativity and innovation.

Massimo and Lella Vignelli were committed to a generous and important initiative at RIT. As world-class designers with over fifty years of combined career success, the Vignellis always made education a high priority. As a result of their close collaboration with RIT and its design faculty and administration, RIT has established the Vignelli Center for Design Studies.
