A film by Beeban Kidron

85 minutes, documentary, color, English, 2014

InRealLife takes us on a journey from the world of Silicon Valley to the bedrooms of British teenagers in order to ask an important question: What exactly is the internet doing to our children? This revealing documentary examines how children are adapting to the technological world we live in, and how free and open connectivity can have alienating and addictive side-effects, especially on the youngest minds using it.

This eye-opening and sometimes shocking documentary delves into the constantly developing relationship between technology and psychology.

Featuring a wide range of luminaries from the technosphere including Julian Assange, Nicolas Negroponte, Jimmy Wales, Luis Von Ahn, Sherry Turkle, Nicholas Carr, Maggie Jackson and others.

They are 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, architectural graphics, and interior and furniture design have earned worldwide respect and numerous international awards for over 40 years.

After Massimo brought the Helvetica typeface to America in 1965, he and Lella moved on to a diverse array of projects, including New York's subway signage and maps, the interior of Saint Peter's Church at Citicorp Center, Venini lamps, Heller dinnerware, furniture for Poltrona Frau, and branding for Knoll International, Bloomingdales, Saks Fifth Avenue, Ford and American Airlines.

Luminaries from the world of design - from architects Richard Meier and Peter Eisenman to graphic designers Milton Glaser, Michael Bierut, and Jessica Helfand - bring us into the Vignellis' world, capturing their intelligence and creativity, as well as their humanity, warmth, and humor.

In May 2014, Massimo passed away at the age of 83. Read more about his inspiring life here.

- 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

“This enthralling documentary goes beyond the duo's epic portfolio to reveal the intimate dynamic of their long-lived partnership. And after you watch 'Design Is One' it's almost impossible to walk anywhere in New York City and not see something the Vignellis had a hand in.” - Vanity Fair

“To leave an indelible impact on a whole nation of people is an accomplishment perhaps no other husband and wife team can claim... the film capture(s) the often humorous and always insightful wisdom of design's first couple.” - Dwell
