This is the Winter of Our Discontent

Lou Dorfsman*, who for more than 40 years designed every aspect of the Columbia Broadcasting Company’s advertising and corporate identity, including the set of Walter Cronkite’s newsroom and the typographically elegant sign system for CBS’s New York headquarters, known as Black Rock, made the CBS TV identity second to none.

*Editor’s note: Thanks to Brad Holland for pointing out that Bill Golden was still art director of CBS when “Hamlet” was aired, leaving the credit as to who designed the book in question. Also, Holland rightly noted that the headline for this item is from “Richard III” not “Hamlet.” (I was being ironic, I think.)
