Milton in the 70s

August 2nd, 2010 by Dan Nadel

I love this video from 1978 of Milton Glaser talking about his work. I often forget that Glaser was unusually involved with the NYC cultural world far beyond design/illustration. His take on things (“clarity”!) is to be valued and his lengthy explanation of his coloring process is a great insight into the old analog methods of production. I could listen to him talk about designating color screens all day. Plus, in 1978 he was coming off a 15 year run of phenomenal image making. Anyhow, enjoy.
