The Massimo Project

designboom_massimo-vignelli_interview_001As you may have heard, Massimo Vignelli is gravely ill. He and his family have requested letters, notes etc from anyone who has been touched, inspired, influenced by the world renowned designer.

The project will embody the gratitude and admiration of creatives in the Richmond and Central Virginia region.

The details are simple:

  1. Utilize the attached file templates with the unigrid, black bars, and Helvetica page titles.
  2. Be creative, use the grid, kern your type, spell check, convert to outlines, yadda yadda yadda.
  3. Email your files to: kim@protozoadesign.com by 6pm on Thursday, May 15th.

Remember, these will be printed so work in at least 300 dpi and CMYK format.

Starting Thursday evening the spreads will be compiled, printed, bound and delivered as soon as humanly possible.

(InDesign file is set up in A4 spreads. The Photoshop and Illustrator file are set up as single A4 pages. Use whichever you feel most comfortable with knowing you’ll have a left and right hand page. The final product will be laid out in InDesign and printed via high res pdf.)
