He co-founded the seminal Pushpin Studios in 1954, founded New York magazine with Clay Felker in 1968, established Milton Glaser, Inc. in 1974, and teamed with Walter Bernard in 1983 to form the publication design firm WBMG. Milton Glaser, Inc. is a multidisciplinary design company, specializing in corporate identity, logos and trademarks, brochures, packaging, interiors, exhibitions, posters and websites. Glaser was the 1972 recipient of the AIGA medal, the highest honor given to a graphic designer in this country, and is the only graphic artist ever to have had one-man shows at both the Centre Gorges Pompidou in Paris and the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

France24, “Beyond the news” Campaign


Agency: Marcel Paris

Brief explanation: France 24 goes beyond the news and unveils the machine working behind every important international event

Creative Director: Frederic Témin / Anne de Maupeou

Copywriter: Eric Jannon

Art Director: Dimitri Guerassimov



France 24 is a new international news channel that seeks to provide a French perspective on world events in competition with the main Anglo-Saxon networks like CNN and BBC World.

The press ads for the TV station show that France 24 goes ‘Beyond the News’ to reveal the machinery influencing every important international event.

The press campaign visualises this with different images replacing the cogs on interlocking wheels and sprockets of various sizes, each turning the other within a closed circuit that resembles the inside of an engine. For example, ‘Finance’ visualizes the interlocking relationship between the Pentagon, the Twin Towers, George Bush, Sadam, war planes, tanks, soldiers, bullets, oil pumps, barrels of oil, money, petrol pumps and voting booths etc. The two other ads in the series address topics like ‘Ecology’ and ‘Health Care’ in a similar manner.
