** The Vignelli Canon **

by Massimo Vignelli

A short read, 120+ pages, that's referred to as a practical manual for designers.

"Every rule of design put into one book. Broad rules that don't restrict but just define good design."

What happens at the Meet-up?

• For every meet-up we'll announce a book. All attendees are expected to read the book (or atleast try their best!)

• We will also ask for volunteers and pick a Book Wizard.

• At the meet-up, the Book Wizard will present a short summary of the book (can be a short 5-15 minute presentation or just a short verbal summary, or even some trivia about the book/author).

• After this it's all a casual chat — we'll talk about the book and discuss more if there interest. We may organize some small activities that help us discuss the book more.

• Important: It's a requirement to order food from the venue. Doesn't have to be big, but please make sure you order. It's not easy to find places without a minimum spend — and there is no other fee for the meet-up. So please show your support for the venue & the club.
