Massimo Vignelli dies at 83

There have always been a select few designers that really appeal to me, and they have almost always been those of a more classical, conservative nature. Of those, Massimo Vignelli was often criticized for producing the same style of work over and over again for all of his clients. However, given his long and successful career, one has to admit that he must have been doing something right. I see his work as a constant seeking of perfection—he did what he did, and he did it really well.

Mr. Vignelli passed away yesterday at 83. The design world will surely miss him.
