The Vignelli Canon

I think it is amazing that Massimo Vignelli created New York subway map. I have only been to New York one time but when I was there I saw the subway map. The thought never crossed my mind until this week that someone actually had to design the map and create it. I don’t know how I thought the map was created but it definitely was not that a man had to draw and figure out how to create the map. I also think it is amazing that he could continue to come up with great designs. For example he Massimo Vignelli created the logos for Ford, IBM, American Airlines, etc. To be able to be creative enough to come up with logo after logo is insane-especially since I do not have a creative bone in my body. Massimo Vignelli created simple designs which are still used today.
