Join Design Council of the Denver Art Museum for the Denver premier of the new documentary Design Is One: Lella & Massimo Vignelli, followed by a live video Q&A with Massimo himself from his New York studio.

Italian-born Lella and Massimo Vignelli are among the world’s most influential designers. The work covers such a broad spectrum that one could say the Vignellis are known by everybody, even those who don’t know their names.

Throughout their career, their motto has been, “If you can’t find it, design it.” Their achievements in industrial and product design, graphic and publication design, corporate identity programs, architectural graphics, and exhibition, interior, and furniture design have earned worldwide respect and numerous national and international awards for over 40 years. Through their product, environmental and graphic design brilliance they have defined contemporary design in an elegant and transformative way and have set a consistent standard for excellence that is inspirational.

There will also be a giveaway to one lucky audience member of the book The Vignelli Canon signed by Massimo.

Reception 5:30-6:30 pm, film 6:30 pm

Free to students presenting valid ID; $8 members of Design Council, AIGA, and Art Directors Club of Denver; $10 general.  Advance ticket purchase suggested.
