This week we lost one of the greatest, most influential graphic designers of our time: Massimo Vignelli. We think that our friend Michael Bierut’s Design Observer post is the best way to pay tribute to a figure whose influence and legacy will live on, continuing to shape the landscape of graphic design for generations.
Over 3,000 creatives filtered into the Hynes Convention Center to attend sessions, workshops and listen to over eighty speakers at the HOW Design Live Conference 2014.
The exhibition hall was filled with beautifully designed booths (go figure!), the smell of freshly printed ink, and the exciting din of designers from around the world all in one room.
Speakers and attendees alike were the friendliest, smartest, and most interesting people you could meet. The variety of backgrounds allowed for a constant flow and cross-pollination of ideas in design.
This month’s MOO Luxe Project is brought to you by one of our favorite letterers and illustrators, Jessica Hische – and it’s quite a beautiful collection. The first design for The Luxe Project that offers a suite of complementary personal or business stationery products is based on Jessica’s popular Daily Drop Cap project.
