Thumbnail for Celebrating Milton Glaser With His Lesser-Known Work

The design world has lost one of its legends. Milton Glaser died on June 26, his birthday, at the age of 91.

His contributions to the field are immense and have rightly generated volumes of their own, and much of his work is ubiquitous in culture today. Rather than provide an overview of that work here, we’re celebrating some of his lesser-seen output, alongside a poignant interview PRINT conducted in 2016, an interview between Glaser and Debbie Millman for Adobe Create, and more.

Here’s to the master. He will be deeply missed by the entire PRINT family.

Steven Heller used to sit next to Milton Glaser at AIGA meetings as the designer sketched away—and when Glaser discarded his drawings, Heller saved them. Here are a few.
