Milton Glaser is one of those designers you just know, whether or not you recognize the name. The I (heart) New York design may be one of the most lasting and iconic images ever created. Yep, that was Glaser. Not only that, but hes never collected a thin dime for it, having contributed his services pro-bono to the 1977 marketing campaign for the state of New York.
Glaser also put forth one of the first lifestyle magazines as co-founder and designer of New York Magazine. You can get the bigger picture of the man through a recent documentary titled “Milton Glaser: To Inform & Delight” which closed its run in June this year but should be available for purchase through Arthouse Films.
Head over to his site to take a look at his work through the years, recently made available for purchase as posters & prints. Bonus: the guy who runs The Full Clip, one of my regular visits on the music blog circuit, works for the guy. Click over to get the good word.
