Massimo and Lella Vignelli

Massimo and Lella Vignelli | Avant-garde Art & Design | Scoop.it
Massimo and Lella Vignelli, founders of Vignelli Associates, received the 1982 AIGA Medal for their prodigious and consistently excellent designs, across a wide range of disciplines: industrial and product design, graphic design, book design, magazine and newspaper design, packaging design, interior and exhibit design, and furniture design.
Alison D. Gilbert's insight:

From Creative Review, "One of the world's great designers, Massimo Vignelli, is very ill and will be spending his last days at home. His son Luca would like all those for whom Vignelli was either an influence or an inspiration to write him a letter."
