Item description for Lella and Massimo Vignelli (International Graphic Design) by Images Publishing Group...
Vignelli is a powerful name in graphic design. IMAGES' Hands On series is greatly enhanced by this wonderful book by Lella and Massimo Vignelli. Massimo learnt early in his career that a designer should be able to design everything, hence, 'design is one'. Lella and Massimo Vignelli prove that design should be semantically correct, syntactically correct, and pragmatically understandable, but also visually powerful, intellectually elegant and timeless. The book shows that real meaning must be researched and consistent throughout a design, and that the final result must be understandable. Design as a complete, or perfect statement is paramount in the philosophy of these modern designers. This is borne out in the featured designs for corporate identity, packaging, post design, interior design, architectural graphics, book and magazine design, furniture design and product design, many with instant global recognition.

Reviews - What do customers think about Lella and Massimo Vignelli (International Graphic Design)?
One to one Jan 29, 2005
What is nice about books such as 'Design is One' is the quality of narrating your experience in first person. Massimo talks to you as you read, making it a very personal tour through the rich Vignelli life of design. To notice the excitements and dissappointments, thus, makes it more of a true story than a glorified publishing product. I didnt enjoy a designer's work more through a book since I read a similar narrative book on Frank Gehry.
