Unlike artists or architects, most people don’t usually know the names of famous graphic designers. Though they usually know their work. Of course everyone knows the I Love New York logo (1976) and the Bob Dylan poster (1966), above. But do they know they were designed by the famous graphic designer, Milton Glaser?
His work aside, there are a number of things that are quite remarkable about Glaser’s career…
He was born and lived in New York City his entire life.
He has been in the business for over 65 years.
He has been teaching graphic design at the School of Visual Arts for 62 years.
To this day, he reports to his Manhattan studio five days a week, even on this 90th birthday, which he celebrated last summer. He has no intention of ever retiring.
He has never used a computer.
That’s all for now!
