Mil­ton Glaser, de­signer of ‘I Love NY’ logo, dies at 91

Arab News - - News Internatio­nal - AP

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.
