Massimo Vignelli was an acclaimed graphic designer who probably more than anyone else, is credited for introducing a European Modernist point of view to American graphic design. Vignelli’s work has been exhibited in North America and Europe. It is in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum in New York, as well as museums in Philadelphia, Montreal, Jerusalem, Munich and Hamburg, Germany. He will be best remembered for his focus on simplicity, and his use of basic geometric forms, a theme throughout all of his work.
