Thank you to all who participated in the drawing for “To Inform and Delight”. I encourage you to get your own copy of the DVD, or find a way to view it somehow. I assure you it will be worth the effort.
A few weeks ago, I was honored to be asked to help promote the DVD release of “Milton Glaser: To Inform & Delight.” It was decided I would raffle a copy of the DVD. After entries for the raffle closed a few days ago, I put all the names into a spreadsheet in random order. Then used a random number generator to pick the winner.
Congratulations to photographer, Joe Gemignani, of Asheville, NC. You can expect your copy of the DVD in the mail sometime very soon. Thank you to all who participated in the drawing for “To Inform and Delight”. I encourage you to get your own copy of the DVD, or find a way to view from a service such as Netflix. However you manage to do it, I assure you it will be worth the effort.
The documentary provides insightful looks into everyday moments of Glaser’s personal life and captures his
immense warmth, humanity and the boundless depth of his intelligence and
creativity. In the case of Milton Glaser it is not a cliche to remark that his is a life well lived.
For many including me, 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.
