R.I.P. Massimo Vignelli

Massimo Vignelli

There is a certain amount of latitude between what is good, what is elegant, and what is refined that can take many, many manifestations. It doesn’t have to be one style. We’re not talking about style, we’re talking about quality.

The world has lost a great designer.

Are Designers Delivering Solutions People Actually Want?

It’s worth noting that everyone I know who’s happiest with Facebook uploads whatever they want, including ugly, low-resolution photos, garbage meme-images, random, hyper-compressed videos, and the rest of the junk that they find interesting. It all looks insane in Paper. Wanting users to spring for DSLRs and learn how to shoot their kale salad with a shallow depth of field so that the very lovely new app you’ve built isn’t ruined by their tastelessness is exactly backwards.

Interesting take on how Design and designers may be losing credibility by not delivering solutions people actually want.

Who Can Tell You No

The quality of your leadership can be defined by the number of people around you who can tell you no.

Travel to the “Enemy”

Travel to a place that has been considered an “enemy” of your country. When I was in Moscow and taking the train along the Trans-Siberian route, I looked around at all the kind, wonderful Russian people I was meeting, and thought, “In my childhood, you were the people I was told to fear. You are them?” It puts politics and fear into perspective.
