Legendary modernist designer Massimo Vignelli has pubished a PDF book–The Vignelli Canon–a 49 page work that aims to be a guide for better typography in graphic design. Part two is full of useful information and guidance–this should be downloaded by every graphic design student (as well as many professionals!) in the land! You can download it for free here www.vignelli.com/canon.pdf or visit the website www.vignelli.com
You don’t get much for free these days, and as the saying goes, “free advice isn’t worth paying for” but just flick to the last page and read the last line. So long in the business–the guy’s 78 years old and still able to instil pride and aspiration to our profession.
