Two of the world's most influential designers, Lella and Massimo Vignelli's work covers such a broad spectrum that one could say they are known by everyone, even by those who don't know their names. Adhering to self-proclaimed motto, "If you can't find it, design it," their achievements in industrial and product design, graphic and publication design, corporate identity, architectural graphics, and exhibition, interior, and furniture design have earned worldwide respect and numerous international awards for over 40 years.
"LINEAR GENIUS, BOLD AND TRANSFORMATIVE. This smart, information-rich film includes perceptive visual details...and is enlivened by the charm of the intelligent, eccentric couple at its heart." - The New York Times
"The joyously symbiotic First Couple of modern design is featured in this sprightly, informative doc which may very well change the way city folk see everything around them." - Film Journal
"An affectionate documentary guided by the same principles championed by its subjects, Design Is One: Lella & Massimo Vignelli takes an efficient, minimalist approach to portraying the careers of the Vignellis, two of the world's most influential and important designers." - The Dissolve
