Milton Glaser, designer of ‘I Love NY’ logo, dies at 91
Milton Glaser, the groundbreaking graphic designer who adorned Bob Dylan’s silhouette with psychedelic hair and summed up the feelings for his native New York with “I (HEART) NY,” died Friday, his 91st birthday.
The cause was a stroke and Glaser had also had renal failure. In posters, logos, advertisements and book covers, Glaser’s ideas captured the spirit of the 1960s. He was the designer on the team that founded New York magazine with Clay Felker in the late ’60s.
“Around our office, of course, he will forever be one of the small team of men and women that, in the late ’60s, yanked
New York out of the newspaper morgue and turned it into a great American magazine,” the magazine’s obituary of Glaser said.
