Milton Glaser’s Legacy

Milton Glaser, one of the world’s most celebrated graphic designers, may also be its most iconic. The illustrator, 85, established a cult following in the ’60s and ’70s with his now-ubiquitous “I ♥ NY” logo and as the co-founder of both New York magazine and the influential design firm Push Pin Studios, though his reach extends far beyond the Empire State. A classically trained artist who studied under the painter Giorgio Morandi, Glaser creates instantly recognizable images — like the psychedelic silhouette he made of Bob Dylan in 1966 — that blur the line between fine art and graphic design. He has conceived book jackets for Philip Roth, album covers for Nina Simone and branding for the Winter Olympics, and in 2009, he became the first graphic designer to receive the National Medal of the Arts. Here, a look at the indelible mark of Manhattan’s most colorful campaigner.

The Real Reasons Chinese Firms Have Weak Branding

In a column for the New York Times, David Brooks posited that the U.S. has one clear advantage over Chinese competition: branding. He notes that U.S. firms are powered by “eccentric failed novelists” (presumably from agencies and consulting firms that are gifted at brand positioning and execution) and “visionary founders” (think Steve Jobs) who have created exceptional brands. This talent is lacking in the Chinese market where “executives tend to see business deals in transactional, not in relationship terms,” as Brooks says. This observation is important because there are Chinese firms that seem to have everything to win globally except for branding and marketing. – See more at: http://www.prophet.com/theinspiratory/2013/07/17/the-real-reasons-chinese-firms-have-weak-branding/#sthash.0UfFdggt.dpuf
