Today the world lost one of the most influential designers of our time, Massimo Vignelli. Michael Bierut, who knew him well, offers a fitting tribute:
Massimo died this morning at the age of 83. Up until the end — I saw him on Thursday — he was still curious, still generous, still excited about design. He leaves his wife, Lella; his children, Luca and Valentina; and generations of designers who, like me, are still learning from his example.
Thank you, Michael. Grazie mille, Massimo.
