Why Milton Glaser’s Iconic “I [Heart] New York” Worked

Glaser scrawled the first draft of the logo in the back of a cab, in 1976, red ink on a scrap of envelope; the sketch is now, fittingly, in the possession of the Museum of Modern Art. He made it for a marketing campaign for New York State, in 1977, which was a tricky moment for the city in particular—it didn’t seem very lovable. In the final design, the typeface is American Typewriter, friendly and approachable, with a cartoonish cast (notice the rounded bent knee of the “N”) that was Glaser’s ...

Milton Glaser (RIP) Explains Why We Must Overcome the Fear of Failure, Take Risks & Discover Our True Potential

Milton Glaser died last week at the age of 91, a long life that included decade upon decade as the best-known name in graphic design. Within the profession he became as well-known as several of his designs did in the wider world: the Bob Dylan poster, logos for companies like DC Comics, the Glaser Stencil font, and above all  I ? NY. Glaser may have become an icon, but he didn't become a brand — "one of my most despised words," he says in the interview clip above. He also acknowledges tha...

How to Draw Like an Architect: An Introduction in Six Videos

That we pass through life without really perceiving our surroundings has long been a commonplace. How can we cure ourselves of this regrettable condition? Before we can learn to notice more of what's around us, we must have a process to test how much we already notice. Many artists and all architects already have one: drawing, the process of recording one's perceptions directly onto the page. But while artists may take their liberties with physical reality — it isn't called "artistic lic...

‘Art is Work’—Milton Glaser 2.0

Following yesterday’s post Writing is Work ..., I thought it would be a good time to revisit a post from 2012. It’s based on the phrase/book Art is Work that I first heard about from artist Gary Kelley when I lived in Iowa: “If graphic design has a grand master, then Milton Glaser is Michelangelo.” […]

A Brief History of IDEO: A Short Documentary Takes You Inside the Design Firm That Changed the Way We Think about Design

The design firm IDEO was founded in 1991, which may not sound like an especially long time ago, but consider it in technological terms: what kind of devices were we using in 1991? How did they look and feel? Chances are not just that the phone and computer you now carry around bear no resemblance to the ones you would have carried around — not that most of them could be carried around — 28 years ago, but that your furniture and household appliances have changed as well. And think, too, of y...

How Tourism Embraces Content Marketing: #NewMexicoTrue

State tourism used to be a series of TV spots to inspire and, if the tourism office was lucky, a memorable slogan. Remember the iconic “I(heart)NY” logo designed by Milton Glaser? The first TV spot urged people to explore upstate New York and break the perception that NY=NYC. It’s a little ironic that decades later, the logo lives on mostly as a symbol of those who visit Manhattan.   State Tourism has caught up to the content age. New Mexico tourism has built on a 6-year-old slogan/campaign ...

Book Review—Citizen Designer: Perspectives on Design Responsibility

A long time I briefly worked to help promote a political campaign. The campaign wasn’t for a candidate running for office, but rather an amendment to the state constitution or something along those lines. The work was for a friend of a friend and it provided for some extra money at a time when I needed a little extra. My job wasn’t anything design related. It was more grunt work, handing out information and hammering some signs into the lawns of people who agreed to have a sign on their lawn....

Citizen Designer

So, what is the responsibility of a designer when the design is impeccable but the client is tainted? Being accountable to some moral standard is the key. A designer must be professionally, culturally, and socially responsible for the impact his or her design has on the citizenry. Indeed, every good citizen must understand that his or her respective actions will have reactions. All individual acts, including the creation and manufacture of design for a client, exert impact on others. But Rand ...

Nailed it: Milton Glaser's 'Space Force' logo

Bloomberg Businessweek asked eight designers to come up with logos for Trump's inane "Space Force." Milton Glaser nailed it. The image represents the relentless intrusion of our president in every aspect of our lives and future.

Considering the buyout

Is it ever okay to sell the rights to your work? Milton Glaser was paid about $2,000 in expenses to create the I Love NY logo, one of the iconic marketing images of its decade. He later said, "I was very happy to do it. I was very happy about the consequences.” Carolyn Davidson originally made $35 for designing the swoosh that Nike made famous. Neither was paid enough, certainly. It's tempting to reject the idea of a creative buyout on principle. After all, you're getting paid a relatively smal...
