Massimo Vignelli: design is one

Some quotes from the lecture of Massimo Vignelli for “Design is One” series lecture.

design is about the balance between function and decoration.

good design should be invisible. but it should been seen. Just as music, it’s invisible, but you can hear it.

to design a show room is to design a space memorable.

taking out is better than adding on.

the way of living is not design.

the purpose of design is nothing more than carrying.

the more art goes into design, the less design is.

design without purpose is useless. if it’s useless, it’s not design.

Last piece advice for young designers: let your burning passion shine.
