Milton Glaser: To Inform and Delight

Opening this weekend in New York: Milton Glaser: To Inform and Delight, directed by Wendy Keys

His presence is so integral to American iconography that even those who have never heard the name will instantly recognize the work of graphic designer Milton Glaser. Glaser's manifold accomplishments, exhibiting a vast array of styles and approaches, include the "I [Heart] NY" campaign, the multicolored menus at the Rainbow Room, and the now-iconic album covers by Townes Van Zandt, Nina Simone, Lightnin' Hopkins, and many other artists, and literally scores of other accomplishments — making him not only synonymous with graphic design in the U.S., but a veritable godfather of pop-culture publicity. As helmed by neophyte director Wendy Keys, Milton Glaser: To Inform and Delight introduces audiences to the legendary creator, with glimpses of his exhaustive portfolio, and candid discussions revealing his intelligence, insight, sense of humor, and boundless creative spirit. — Nathan Southern, All Movie Guide
