    Picturing the Vignellis

    There are two books called design: Vignelli. The first published in 1981, is essentially a book of black and white images of the designs of Massimo and Lella Vignelli. The second design: Vignelli book was published in 1990. It is bigger, has more images (and in color!), more text, and more staff in the office to picture in the biography section. (Even a younger Michael Bierut!)

    By looking at the sketches for these two books, we can see how their treatment of their biographies and portraits changed, while the cover is nearly the same. We can also see how clear the vision for the layout is and how closely the final design reflects the early sketches.

    Check out this past post that shows more of the grid for the 1990 version of design: Vignelli.
