I thought I’d share this great free e-book by master-designer Massimo Vignelli. The Vignelli Canon is full of Massimo’s design ideals and theory. It shows how he structures his documents using grids and the process behind some of his creations. He also discusses the unnecessary use of different fonts and a lot about trying to create timelessness, something we should all strive for when designing.
The book is a must read for artists and designers. It’s full of great tips and hopefully will set you on the right path to becoming a better graphic designer. Only we can stop bad design.
