Milton Glaser, born this day, 1929 in New York. Creator of one of the most iconic and well known logos out there, I Love N Y as well as the iconic Bob Dylan poster from 1967. Among his design work at NYMag and countless book jackets(this one below being a personal favorite), he's also designed the Brooklyn Brewery logo as well as the DC Comics logo(used for over 25 years). In his youth, he attended Cooper Union, received a Fulbright Scholarship and studied abroad. He also co-founded New York Magazine in 1968 with Clay Felkner(you can view Google's archives of the magazine HERE). Happy Birthday to a true design icon.

I love your blog. Milton Glaser is one of the reasons I moved to New York. Thanks James.

Great post on Milton Glaser. Below is a link to an interview / short film with the man himself talking about his work and philosophy.
