Unimark/Vignelli's NYC Transit Authority's Graphic Standards Manual online....

Hey kids, thank Nike Skourtis, Jesse Reed and Hamish Smyth for their efforts with virtual beers, social media shares and possible facebook pokes or something - because they put the New York City Transit Authority Graphic Standards manual designed by Unimark/Vignelli online in an easily pinnable, sharable and look-through-able form. For those not familiar with design manuals, this is why art directors sneer at you creative recruiters when you come with braindead input like "this might have been better with a different font*" while looking at a national telco campaign. The design manual, the design manual rules. Capiche?

* Typeface. Typeface you fool. How did you even get this job?
