  85. My deep respect for form and positive and negative space

    comes from studying Frank Lloyd Wright ’s idea of compression and expansion. You walk into a F.L.W. building and the entrance way is so small it makes you almost dip your head. And then as soon as you walk into the main room, he blows up the space, and it makes you feel ‘oh, that ’s so good’. — Platon, photographer “

  137. “ THE VIGNELLI CANON Great designs can be achieved without

    the use of the grid, but the grid is a very useful tool to guarantee results. Ultimately the most important tool is the management of the white space in layouts. It is the white space that makes the layout sing. Bad layouts have no space left for breathing — every little space is covered by a cacophony of type sizes, images, and screaming titles.
