Milton Glaser é um prestigiado designer gráfico norte-americano, conhecido na cultura popular principalmente por seu cartaz de Bob Dylan e pela campanha I love NY.

Glaser estudou na Cooper Union entre 1948 e 1951 e continuou sua formação na Academia de Belas Artes de Bolônia com o pintor Giorgio Morandi. Em 1954, Glaser, junto com Reyonld Ruffins, Seymour Chwast, e Edward Sorel, fundaram o Pushpin Studios. Por vinte anos Glaser e Chwast dirigiram o Pushpin, um referêncial que guiava o mundo design gráfico. Em 1974 Glaser montou seu próprio escritório.

Ao longo da sua carreira Glaser teve um grande impacto na ilustração e design gráfico contemporâneo.

No Brasil em 1995, o escritório de design WBMG, de Walter Bernard & Milton Glaser, foi contratado para cuidar da reformulação gráfica do jornal O Globo.


„Todos somos ou vítimas ou participantes de nosso tempo.“

„A Cultura é definida tanto pelo que é proibido quando pelo que é aceito. Mas a Internet não proíbe nada.“


„Os melhores desenhos vêm quando você olha para alguma coisa com reverência e concessão à singularidade dela.“

„O design parece ocupar um lugar entre artes plásticas e artesanato, entre estética e comércio, beleza e persuasão, novidade e familiaridade e assim por diante…“

„If you can sustain your interest in what you’re doing, you’re an extremely fortunate person. What you see very frequently in people’s professional lives, and perhaps in their emotional life as well, is that they lose interest in the third act. You sort of get tired, and indifferent, and, sometimes, defensive. And you kind of lose your capacity for astonishment — and that’s a great loss, because the world is a very astonishing place.

What I feel fortunate about is that I’m still astonished, that things still amaze me. And I think that that’s the great benefit of being in the arts, where the possibility for learning never disappears, where you basically have to admit you never learn it.“

„We are all born with genius. It's like our fairy godmother. But what happens in life is that we stop listening to our inner voices, and we no longer have access to this extraordinary ability to create poetry.“

„If you perceive the universe as being a universe of abundance, then it will be. If you think of the universe as one of scarcity, then it will be... I always thought that there was enough of everything to go around - that there are enough ideas in the universe and enough nourishment.“

„You must embrace failure“


„You learn more and more that everything exists at once with its opposite, so the contradictions of life are never-ending and somehow the mediation between these opposites is the game of life.“

„Travel penetrates your consciousness, but not in a rational way.“

„The next time you see a sixteen-color, blind-embossed, gold-stamped, die-cut, elaborately folded and bound job, printed on handmade paper, see if it isn't a mediocre idea trying to pass for something else.“

„We’re always looking, but we never really see.“
