This looks so great. I’m glad to see Vignelli is in the documentary as well. He (and the infamousย Helvetica documentary) were huge inspirations to me in high school. May he forever rest in peace.

I’m also a huge rail-nerd. So seeing Vignelli critique the 1969 CN logo is going to be mind-blowing for me. You can read more about the Allan Fleming re-branding here, and more about CN’s history, here.
