Meet the Artisans
Milton Glaser, an American designer, was born in New York City on June 26, 1929. He attended the High School of Music and Art and the Cooper Union Art School in New York, and later, via a Fulbright Scholarship, the Academy of Fine Arts, Bologna, Italy. In 1954, he founded Pushpin Studios with fellow classmates. For twenty years Glaser, together with Seymour Chwast, directed the organization, which exerted a powerful influence on the direction of world graphic design, culminating in a memorable exhibition at the Louvre Museum of Decorative Arts.
In 1968, Glaser and Clay Felker founded New York Magazine, where he was president and design director until 1977. Later in 1983, Glaser and Walter Bernard formed WBMG, a publication design firm. Since its inception, WBMG redesigned a long list of magazines, consulted on various news publications, and designed a number of books.
Milton Glaser, Inc. was established in 1974. The work produced at this Manhattan studio encompasses a wide range of design disciplines. In the area of print graphics, the studio produces identity programs including logos, stationery, brochures, signage, and annual reports. In the field of environmental and interior design, the firm has conceptualized and site-supervised the fabrication of numerous products, exhibitions, interiors and exteriors of restaurants, shopping malls, supermarkets, hotels, and other retail and commercial environments.
Throughout his illustrious career, Glaser has created over 300 posters and prints. He created the iconic I Heart NY logo in 1976 and designed the World Health Organizations International AIDS Symbol and poster in 1987. In 1993, he designed the logo for Tony Kushners Pulitzer Prize winning play, Angels in America.
Glasers designs have been exhibited all over the world, including solo exhibitions in Paris Centre Georges Pompidou and MOMA in New York. Among many awards over the years, Glaser was the recipient of the Lifetime Achievement Award from the Smithsonian Cooper-Hewitt, National Design Museum. Glaser also received the prestigious National Medal of Arts, the highest award given to individuals or groups who are deserving of special recognition by reason of their outstanding contributions to the excellence, growth, support and availability of the arts in the United States. This award was presented by President Obama in the East Room in The White House.
