I subscribe to a very similar design philosophy/aesthetic and I can only hope that my work is viewed as "visually powerful, elegant and timeless." Below are a few quotes from Vignelli that I jotted down during the lecture. They really struck a cord with me:
-Sift, sift, sift...until you get to the essence.
-Decoration should not be added, it should be integrated.
-Play with light---and the reflection or absorption of light, texture vs. shine.
