Milton Glaser

A designer and an illustrator, if you can separate the two, Milton Glaser is one of the most recognized designers of the second half of the 20th century. His work has taken the form of many vessels, including Pushpin Studios, New York Magazine, and Milton Glaser, Inc. He was a founding member of all three organizations. Each of which has significantly contributed to the development of the design and advertising professions. Still in operation, all three continue to create new material on a regular basis.

Educated at the Cooper Union in New York and a previous member of the staff and board at the School of Visual Arts, he has been a continued member of both the design and education communities. His list of recognitions is incredible, and includes the Smithsonian Cooper-Hewitt Design Museum's lifetime achievement award. The character of his work is matched only by his own personality and his influence on graphic designers of all ages, ethnicity and gender.
