Two days ago, the design industry lost one of their greatest assets when Massimo Vignelli passed away at the age of 83. To the world, Vignelli is known best as the person who designed the New York City Subway Map, the previous logo for American Airline, and a prolific user of Helvetica. To us, calling Vignelli an inspiration would be an understatement. His vision and passion to modernism was one of the very reason that shaped us today, and we mourn in our hearts for this loss.
Ciao, Massimo. Riposa in pace e grazie di tutto.
