Design Is One: The Vignellis cover


First Run Features presents the U.S. theatrical premiere of Design is One, the definitive documentary about the legendary and iconic design team of Lella and Massimo Vignelli, on October 11 in New York at the IFC Center, followed by a national release to theaters in select cities. In 1965, Massimo Vignelli brought the Helvetica typeface to the U.S., launching the new DNA of modern design. Together with his wife and creative partner Lella, the team designed the New York City subway map, and theeverlasting identities of the world’s premiere fashion, design and leisure brands including Knoll, Bloomingdales, Ducati, Fratelli Rosetti, Saks Fifth Avenue, the Ford Motor Company and American Airlines. Luminaries such as Richard Meier, Peter Eisenman and Milton Glaser, Michael Bierut and Jessica Helfand all speak to filmmakers Kathy Brew and Roberto Guerra about the Vignelli’s work, from the perspective of being both peers and fans. Most importantly, the film features extensive personal conversations with Lella and Massimo themselves, who reveal for the viewer their intensely collaborative creative process and the inner workings of their deceptively linear genius that has defined contemporary design as we have come to know it.
