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.
