As part of its new campaign, Pentagram has created a short but insightful video that features prolific designer Massimo Vignelli, who talks about his old-fashioned approach to book-making.
Instead of doing all the layout on the computer like most designers these days, Vignelli still uses a pencil and grid to determine the placement of images and text on each and every page.
Explaining why the grid is the “underwear” of the book, the veteran designer reveals the fascinating process behind how he makes books, including how he sketches every single image in the book.

"A boy, having lost his glasses, can only see one thing in focus at a time. His sight gets attracted by the sounds that surround him. He will have to explore a blurry world of unknown places and strange characters."
“Astigmatismo” is a short-film about the feeling of being lost. This feeling is created thanks to an extreme blur effect, leaving only a very tiny space in focus. The focus shifts and moves rhythmically, synchronized with the sounds and the music, revealing a constantly changing landscape.
The optical effect of blur is at the core of the film, so to make this effect as beautiful and authentic as possible "Astigmatismo" is shot in a 5-level multiplane using a special lens. The animation involves cut-out marionettes and paint on glass. Everything is entirely made by hand and there are no post production effects.
