BEST POSTER DESIGN [Sara J]

Milton Glaser
in brief

Milton Glaser (b.1929) is among the most celebrated graphic designer in the United States. He has had the distinction of one-man-shows at the Museum of Modern Art and the Georges Pompidou Center. In 2004 he was selected for the lifetime achievement award of the Cooper Hewitt National Design Museum. As a Fulbright scholar, Glaser studied with the painter, Giorgio Morandi in Bologna, and is an articulate spokesman for the ethical practice of design. He opened Milton Glaser, Inc. in 1974, and continues to produce an astounding amount of work in many fields of design to this day.
this poster was designed as a reaction to the events of Sept. 11, 2001. and all proceeds will go to NY charities hurt by the events of that day.
Milton Glaser created a modified version of his logo “I love NY” to commemorate the attacks, reading “I Love NY More Than Ever”, with a little black spot on the heart symbolizing the World Trade Centers. The black spot approximates the site’s location on Manhattan Island.
