Appreciating Vignelli

I discovered the work of the iconic designer of all things perfect, Massimo Vignelli while attending art school in the 1980's. Instantly I became a Vignelli Groupie.

You know his work. It's become a part of our national consciousness. His Wiki page is here.

I know I have reached the end of another year when I have come to the last page on my Vignelli designed Stendig calendar and it's time to hang a new one.
"If you can design one thing, you can design everything." - Massimo Vignelli
I have had one on my wall ever since 1980. Each year I try to wean myself, but I am hooked.

Almost time for a new one.

Yes, I met him in 1983. Did I mention, I am a groupie?!

I am ready!

Me too! We put one on the brick wall over the desk of our son's apartment last year. Need to replace it, thanks for the prompt!
