An elegant look at the work of Massimo and Lella Vignelli, two internationally acclaimed names who have become synonymous with modern design. Encompassing some of the most iconic images of the 20th century, from New York's famous Subway signs to the bold bags of Bloomingdale's department stores, Vignelli designs have become part of contemporary culture, and this inspirational book takes readers on an aesthetic, alphabetical journey from Helvetica to Style, Typography and of course the Vignellis themselves: the names behind the names. There are also insights into the inspiration behind interiors, dinnerware, furniture, fashion, newspapers, magazines and architecture, all captured with typical Vignelli typographical flair. "An architect should be able to design everything from the spoon to the city," repeats Massimo Vignelli, and this talented duo have certainly done that.--From publisher description.

Abbott Miller: Design and Content is the first monograph on the award-winning graphic designer known for his innovative work at Pentagram, where as a partner he leads a team designing books, magazines, catalogs, identities, exhibitions, and editorial projects, creating work that is often concerned with the cultural role of design and the public life of the written word. Collaborating with performers, curators, artists, photographers, writers, publishers, corporations, and institutions, Miller has created a unique practice that alternates between the printed page and the physical space of exhibitions. In his work as an editor and writer he pioneered the concept of designer-as-author, both roles he assumes for this beautifully produced and lavishly illustrated edition. Miller presents his work as a catalog of design strategies, emerging from the unique circumstances of form and content. Four categories—books, exhibitions, magazines, and identity—provide insight into Miller's influences and working process while also showcasing his best designs.

Lella and Massimo Vignelli: Two Lives, One Vision is a portrait of two important twentieth-century designers whose careers have intertwined since the 1950s. The Vignellis promote a modernist philosophy of designing for a better society: resourceful use of space and materials, clear communication, lasting quality, and logical functionality. Through a mix of archival research and personal interviews with Lella, Massimo, and their many colleagues and clients, Jan Conradi documents the Vignellis' nuanced approach to "cleaning up" an often chaotic and messy society by adhering to a minimalist and structured design method. The Vignellis' lifetime commitment to a world of design is marked by vibrant client relationships and unwavering attention to detail. With wit, grace, focus, and finesse, the Vignellis' sustained pattern of working and living has influenced, and continues to inspire, generations of designers worldwide. JAN CONRADI is a Professor of Graphic Design at Rowan University in New Jersey, where she teaches typography and design history.
