This design movie is about Massimo Vignelli and his work between N.Y and Italy. This documentary had the contribute of Milton Glaser, Michael Bierut e Peter Eisenman.

What do  people say about this film?

“Before watching this 79 minute 2013  design movie on the husband/wife design team Massimo and Lella Vignelli, another fine DVD in the arts and design series from First Run Features, I had never heard of them. But once I film started I knew their work – just not their name. Think of the design of the New York Subway map or the connecting o’s in Bloomingdales logo or Americana Airlines logo. These are designs from the couple. When you choose Helvetia as a font on your PC you can thank them too. (It started to be used in Switzerland but it was Massimo who brought it to the US. While Massimo is more involved in graphic design, his wife makes jewelry and together they design cookware and cutlery. And a church – Saint Peter’s in New York.

“PressPausePlay is a design movie about how the rapid rise and spread of technology has caused massive cultural shifts in art, most notably with music. Anyone, in particular those who are Millennials like me, will easily relate to this documentary as anyone with a Facebook can see this progressing all the time.”

Sorry for the layout but i put an input and it comes out different, I don’t know why, hopefully the words didn’t change.
