For many, Milton Glaser is the personification of American graphic design. Best known for co-founding New York Magazine and the enduring I ♥ NY campaign, the full breadth of Glaser’s remarkable artistic output is revealed in this documentary portrait, MILTON GLASER: TO INFORM AND DELIGHT. From newspapers and magazine designs to interior spaces, logos, and brand identities, to his celebrated prints, drawings, posters and paintings, the documentary offers audiences a much richer appreciation for one of the great modern renaissance men.
Artfully directed by first-time filmmaker Wendy Keys, the film glances into everyday moments of Glaser’s personal life and captures his immense warmth and humanity, and the boundless depth of his intelligence and creativity.
The documentary premiere is set for May 22. Look for it at an arthouse theater near you. You are certain to be delighted.
Last year, I wrote a post reprinting, with Mr. Glaser’s kind permission, his iconic 10 Things I Have Learned. To help illustrate the post, he kindly provided a spectacular image titled The Secret of Art. It neatly showcases his eye and elegance, and his wit and wisdom.
