Design and Vignelli

For the start of this week we are to learn about design through The Vignelli Canon by M.Vignelli. I knew a little bit about design due to fixing photos for my high schools news magazine and also attending design workshops but since I came to college I kind of forgot about all that. Re-reading this brought all the old information back and also taught me knew information. I didn’t know much about typography and books until reading this, although I don’t think books or letter heads will help me much in this online class. I did like the read though since it was fairly light on words and heavy on images of design. Vignelli really got me thinking of design and how much really goes into it and how it’s not just random – even though it can be. Hopefully I can accomplish some of his concepts by the end of this week or at least the end of this semester.
