For many, Milton Glaser is the personification of American graphic design. Best known for co-founding New York Magazine and the enduring “I Love NY” campaign, the full breadth of Glaser’s remarkable artistic output is revealed in this documentary portrait “Milton Glaser: To Inform and Delight.” From newspapers and magazine designs, to interior spaces, logos, and brand identities, to his celebrated prints, drawings, posters and paintings, the documentary offers audiences a much richer appreciation for one of the great modern renaissance men. The film glances into everyday moments of Glaser’s personal life and captures his immense warmth and humanity, and the boundless depth of his intelligence and creativity.
*The screening will be followed by a panel discussion with Filmmaker Wendy Keys and Walter Bernard, graphic designer & partner with Milton Glaser.
