The American graphic designer Milton Glaser, who created the famous logo of new York and New York magazine, died in the day of his birth at the age of 91 years. On Friday, June 26, The New York Times reported, citing his widow.
The cause of death Glazer was a stroke. The designer also suffered renal failure.
In 1977 Glaser as part of a campaign to promote tourism in new York has developed a logo I Love New York (“I love new York”), consisting of four symbols between the letters I and NY is a red heart replacing the phrase the word “love”. This work became part of American pop culture and recognizable symbol of new York.
Another famous work of the designer — the psychedelic poster 1967 with Bob Dylan, which shows a silhouette of a musician with multi-colored hair.
In 2004, Glaser won the award from the National design Museum for his significant contribution to the development of modern design. In 2009, then-President Barack Obama awarded him the National medal of arts for outstanding achievements and support of art.
