New York Film Academy (NYFA) Graphic Design students recently had the opportunity to meet famed graphic designer Milton Glaser and visit his New York studio.
Milton Glaser is an American graphic designer behind one of the most widely recognized logos in the world. In the 1970s he was commissioned to design something that would attract more tourists to New York City, resulting in the iconic “I ♥ New York” logo. His other famous works include logos for the Brooklyn Brewery, Stony Brook University, and the DC Comics logo used between 1977 and 2005.
In 2009, Glaser became the first graphic designer to receive the illustrious National Medal of Arts. That same year a documentary film based on his life, To Inform and Delight: The World of Milton Glaser, released.
NYFA Graphic Design instructor Jee-eun Lee worked with Glaser for many years. The 1-year Conservatory students of NYFA’s Graphic Design school were welcomed by Glaser, got to check out his work first hand, and speak with him on in a small intimate setting.
New York Film Academy thanks legendary and award-winning graphic designer Milton Glaser for welcoming our Graphic Design students and sharing his expertise with them!
