Reflection on The Vignelli Canon

The design resource called “The Vignelli Canon” is a short booklet written by Massimo Vignelli. Massimo Vignelli is a very talent design artist and a famously known in the design field. Luckily for us, Vignelli wrote this short book to share his knowledge in the art of design to help and encourage other designers.

Something that I wanted to include because I found it very interesting was learning that Massimo Vignelli worked alongside with his wife, Lella Massimo. And I feel like that is not something you hear about often, especially knowing that they basically spent every minute of everyday together.

The book is split into two parts: The Intangibles and The Tangibles. The Intangibles pin points the theoretical and intellectual parts of design, or the broader parts of design. The Tangibles is the in-between and practical parts of the theoretical and intellectual parts of design. The Tangibles goes into depth in little aspects of design. For example, how color might affect the mood or emotion of the artwork.
