If you’re in town this weekend, head over to MoMA to see their installation celebrating Massimo Vignelli’s work in the New York subway system. One of the most renowned graphic designers of our time, Vignelli, along with visionary transit leaders like Daniel Scannell, was instrumental in creating the iconic signage system for New York’s subway that we know and love. The design for his infamous 1972 subway map, coveted by most designers today, along with MTA’s popular Vignelli-designed Weekender map are featured in this tribute organized by MoMA’s Paola Antonelli. Learn more about the story here.

From Massimo, I Iearned that designing a book wasn’t about coming up with a clever place for the page numbers. He taught me about typography, about scale, about pacing, about refinement. I learned to think of graphic design as a way to create an experience, an experience that was not limited to two dimensions or to a momentary impression. It was about creating something lasting, even timeless. -M. Bierut
Iconic Advice - rePosts and reVived (ukre8)
It’s been a while since I’ve written about the act of creativity in my Iconic Advice series. It was put on the back burner for a couple of years, but now that I have completed my masters degree and moved into new chapters of my life, I want to finish what I’ve started. The series was inspired by the pages of Computer Arts, and I used it as a platform to get my ideas on paper and strive to be better.
Moving forward, I will be seeking insight and answers from fellow creatives to give the new content various point of views. There is never a perfect solution, but rather one best suited for the project at the time. I hope to share observations and knowledge on what makes us creatives tick. I will begin by rePosting previous opinions, then reVive the series with newer advice, rants and thoughts.
Look out for future #IconicAdvice.
After reading this article http://www.thefoxisblack.com/2014/01/22/squarespace-logo-offends-designers-rationality-goes-out-window/
About squarespace’s new offering of simple logos to its clients I decided to make my own.
