“I go to work every morning with the possibility that I might learn something I don’t already know… You should look at every problem and think, ‘what can I learn by doing this?’ And if you think you can learn nothing, forget about doing it.”

Milton Glaser is considered by many — myself included — the greatest graphic designer alive. Named Most Influential Graphic Designer of the Past 50 Years by the Graphic Design USA Magazine 50th Anniversary Survey.

Few designers evoke as much praise from their eminent peers as Milton Glaser. Over the last five decades, he has been one of the most internationally renowned and highly influential figures in design. Vastly prolific, his versatility as a practitioner spans many design disciplines, including graphics, exhibitions, interiors, furniture and products.

The I♥NY logo, designed in 1977, is arguably his most famous and celebrated piece of work. The logo has become a pop-culture icon, inspiring imitations in every corner of the globe. He also co-founded New York Magazine in 1968.

He is a living legend, one of the most beloved creatives and a truly design hero. “A remarkable educator who has shaped lives for more than half a century, a man of uncommon wisdom on art, integrity, and the kindness of the universe” like Maria Popova describes him.
