Milton Glaser, the legendary American graphic designer who brought us such icons as the ‘I ♥ NY’ logo and the famous ‘rainbow Jewfro’ Bob Dylan psychedelic poster, became the first graphic designer to receive the National Medal of Arts after President Obama bestowed it on him last week. Over his epic career, Glaser, 80, indelibly shaped the next generation of graphic designers (this designer included), both through his work and as an instructor at the School of Visual Arts. “I wish my mother was alive to see this,” Glaser said last week. Every graphic designer in North America (and their mothers) subsequently kvelled.
