Time to Get Graphic
Wed wager the richest person in the world is the guy who created the I Heart NY design that covers souvenir tchotchkes to T-shirts in Third-World countries. But Milton Glaser never received a penny when NYC officials commissioned his graphic design skills for a morale-boosting PR campaign during the murder- and drug-filled 70s. Still, its a helluva line on his resumé alongside Glasers other achievements: iconic Bob Dylan posters, DC Comics and Brooklyn Brewery logos, as well as New York Magazine, which he cofounded in 1968.
Glaser claims drawing equals thinking, so its fitting that a documentary based on his legacy, Milton Glaser: To Inform & Delight, will screen at Miamis museum of thinkism, the Wolfsonian, this Friday at 7 p.m. The graphic designer stills creates pro bono leftist slogan buttons for The Nation, so perhaps he wouldnt mind sending a little visual magic to another city in need of a PR boost. Think we can fit We promise not to murder or mug you on a shot glass?
