Ode to Vignelli

  • The Ode to Vignelli Series is a personal project created 
    to highlight key practices and sayings from The Vignelli 
    Canon by Massimo Vignelli. I tried to create posters that 
    would both showcase and use the techniques from his 
    Canon. By using a select number of typefaces, the same 
    grid throughout, and just three colors, I tried to maintain 
    continuity and justify Vignelli’s words. 

    Each piece keeps track of the exact location of the quote 
    used and touches on the meaning of the set. I used black, 
    white, and cyan to show the range one can achieve with 
    a limited palate, choosing a blue tone to compliment the 
    cover of the Canon. I do not, by any means, take credit 
    for the excerpts used throughout these pieces, and 
    merely wish to honor a true master of our time. 

    Thank you Massimo for your inspirational 
    words, I hope I did them justice!
