Write to Massimo Vignelli

TheeBlog-MassimoVignelli Woke up to some very sad news coming from New York this morning. Mr. Massimo Vignelli, one of the true iconic legends of Design, and an incredible source of professionalism, knowledge and inspiration is very ill and will be spending his last days at home. Whether you are a Designer or not, his work touched many lives and is still around (Google him) inspiring many of us. I had the enormous pleasure of meeting and spending some time with him last year while in New York and he was not only inspirational but a genuine, kind and amazing gentleman. Since Massimo has decided to spend his last days at home, his son Luca would like all those for whom his father was either an influence or an inspiration to write him a letter. This is a special and touching request, and I urge you all to be part of it and show a legend like Massimo how much he means and has done for us. Keep reading for information…

According to Michael Bierut, “Luca said that Massimo would be thrilled to get notes of good wishes from people whom he’s touched or influenced – whether personally or remotely – over the years. Luca has visions of huge mail bags full of letters. I know that one of Massimo’s biggest fantasies has been to attend his own funeral. This will be the next best thing. Pass the word.”

Please send your notes, letters, cards, etc to:
