Massimo Vignelli

September 30, 2012

My graphic designer is Massimo Vignelli. He has been working in the business for over 40 years and while you may not know him by name, you definitely know his designs. He is responsible for the design of the MTA subway and train maps and grid system. He is also the designer of the American Airlines logo, Bloomingdales logo and the National Parks Services system. He is one of the most influential designers of our time because of his iconic and everlasting designs. He creates timeless designs by keeping them simple, efficient and clear. It goes to show that sometimes the best design is not the most stimulating and eye-catching, but instead just aesthetically appealing and understandable. ImageImage
