Hardly two weeks after its release, we can happily record the first fine use of House Industries’ Vēlo, for a poster announcing a monthly screening and discussion series exploring the intersection of cinema, architecture and design, organized by Ennead Architects in collaboration with IFC Center.
The program gets underway on Monday, October 20 at 8:00pm with …
[a] special tribute to legendary designer Vignelli, including a screening of Gary Hustwit’s acclaimed documentary Helvetica (2007), about the nearly ubiquitous typeface of which Vignelli was a staunch proponent, including never-before-seen outtakes of Vignelli himself. Following the screening, Hustwit and a panel composed of longtime associate Beatriz Cifuentes of Vignelli Asscociates, noted typeface designer Tobias Frere-Jones, Design Matters’ Debbie Millman and graphic designer Paula Scher of Pentragram will discuss Vignelli’s life, career and legacy in a conversation moderated by Todd Schliemann, Design Partner at Ennead Architects.
