Wise Words of Massimo Vignelli

After reading this short booklet, it is very obvious that Vignelli is extremely passionate about the different aspects of graphic design. I started noticing throughout the reading that the word “design” was capitalized just about every time the word showed up. I thought this was interesting because you don’t really see words like that capitalized, more significant words are the ones you see capitalized, so what this told me is that he thinks of design as something very important.
When first reviewing this week and noticing that we would be dealing with techniques the first thing that came to mind was proper placements in photos/ads, bright colors, and large words. I was quickly proven wrong that those are just a few of the aspects of design. Vignelli helped me to understand the parts of design a little better by breaking it down into the tangibles and intangibles. It helped to show me that you not only need to think of the obvious things like color, scale, texture, contrasting, layouts, etc…, but that you also need to think bout the idea of the design and end product before you even start. He helped me to better realize that there is usually meaning and thought that goes into a certain design before it is made into a final product because if no thought is put into the design, then what is the point of it?
Honestly, I didn’t know how much I would actually get out of reading his short little booklet because, to me, I thought I already knew enough about design, but clearly I was wrong. I now know that I need to put detail and thought into creating photos and pieces for the design to turn out nicely. It makes me want to set higher standards for myself when coming up with a design for a certain photo. I can’t wait to take his words of design wisdom and put them to use for the DesignBlitz this week; I think it will be a good way to make me more aware of my surroundings and be on the look out for ads that are constantly¬†around me that use these design techniques.

Here’s a link to his booklet:

GOLDMAN: I asked both the NCAA and Texas A why a half, not a whole game or multiple games or nothing? Neither would say why, so we’re left to wonder how he gets a 30 cheap football jerseys china minute punishment and how another player, current Dallas Cowboy star Dez Bryant, was banned 10 games when he played at Oklahoma State for lying about having a meal with former NFL star Deion Sanders, a meal that wasn’t a violation of the rules. Go figure.I agree with you that someone who wants to be a journalist wants to know everything about everyone, but I also think true journalists can also have specific interests. For example I sure there are journalists who are interested in politics more than anything else. There are also fashion Replica Oakleys journalists Cheap Football Jerseys who like to spend their journo years writing about fashion, instead of politics, or deaths. I practically agree wholesale china jerseys with you, but also disagree at the same time. I think you don have to focus on everything if you land your perfect job, and end up writing about fashion, or politics. I think a main focus of a journalist is the passion to inform.Cornerback Ron Brooks is lost for the year with a ruptured right quadriceps cheap jordans tendon, so Schwartz and Co. will scramble just to find bodies to line up against the Cowboys. Safety Malcolm Jenkins dropped down and played slot cornerback in nickel packages after Brooks got hurt, forcing Jaylen Watkins to replace Jenkins at safety.The Swinging GateIn the Swinging Gate trick play formation, the offensive lineman line up near the sideline rather than the middle hashes http://www.nfljerseysshow.com where the center is snapping. This is intended to confuse the defense about where to line up do you defend the ball or the players to the side? Once the defense is nice and confused, the quarterback makes the decision as to where there is not enough defenders in this case, they didn’t leave enough defending the ball and makes them pay with a long Touchdown!The fresh cut grass and crisply painted yard lines. The sound of helmets clashing in an epic stack of large men vying for a single ball. Stands packed high with thousands upon thousands of crazed, prideful, body painted fanatics. The cheerleaders. The roar of the crowd. Chips, dip, and booze. Hilarious touchdown dances. Dementia, confusion, and depression.Right now, The Walking Dead fans are in the process of trying to solve what was supposed to be the big cliffhanger of the Season Six: Whose head got bashed in by evil villain “Twice As Dangerous As the Governor Because He Has Both Eyes” Negan? Since the show itself didn’t offer enough contextual clues, fans decided to find out who got killed by keeping track of which actors had signed contracts to work elsewhere. Once Season Seven started filming, their theories were seemingly confirmed by monitoring which actors were seen hanging around on ray bans sale set. (There is an entire Facebook group dedicated to the task. Or you can go to the Walking Dead subreddit if you want to spoil yourself. Or simply hang around Tumblr for a while if you want someone else to spoil you.)
