It’s Manuals Monday! Every (almost) Monday we feature an excerpt from a graphics standards manual from the archives.
Today’s manual is for The New Yorker magazine designed by Vignelli Associates, circa 1999. The magazine was celebrating their 75th anniversary in February 2000.
From the press release for the 75th anniversary issue: “The design team was led by Caroline Mailhot of The New Yorker, and Massimo Vignelli, Lella Vignelli, and Yoshiki Waterhouse of Vignelli Associates.” And the press release also states that Vignelli Associates is “one of the world’s most important design firms.”
Just weeks before this press release, editor of The New Yorker David Remnick wrote Massimo Vignelli in letter and said, “...just a word of thanks for all you have done. Not least, the sensitivity to the magazine as a breathing thing. It really is inspiring to listen to you and watch you work.”
