Massimo Vignelli, the renowned Modernist designer, has released a free digital edition of The Vignelli Canon, a book on the importance of following good typographic principles in Graphic Design.
Design is one – it is not many different ones. The discipline of Design is one and can be applied to many different subjects, regardless of style. Design discipline is above and beyond any style. All style requires discipline in order to be expressed.
Very often people think that Design is a particular style. Nothing could be more wrong! Design is a discipline, a creative process with its own rules, controlling the consistency of its output toward its objective in the most direct and expressive way.
This is a must read for people interested in Graphic Design. You can download the book here.
