Product Description



For many, Milton Glaser is the personification of American graphic design. Best known for co-founding New York Magazine and creating the enduring I NY campaign, the full breadth of Glaser s remarkable artistic output is revealed in this documentary portrait, MILTON GLASER: TO INFORM AND DELIGHT . From newspapers and magazine designs, to interior spaces, logos and brand identities, to his celebrated prints, drawings, posters and paintings, the documentary offers audiences a much richer appreciation for one of the great modern renaissance men.



Artfully directed by first-time filmmaker Wendy Keys, the film glances into everyday moments of Glaser s personal life and captures his immense warmth and humanity, as well as the boundless depth of his intelligence and creativity.

That's worth knowing.

This works well, because he is not only a great designer but is very erudite and articulate.

This is an interesting and thorough look at the work of the contemporary graphic designer Milton Glaser, told through interviews. Most of the talking is done by Glaser himself. This works well, because he is not only a great designer but is very erudite and articulate. There are also interviews with his collaborators and with design writers. The film's title was picked by Glaser, and quotes the Roman poet Horace's statement of the purpose of art: to inform and delight.

The film is illustrated with many examples of Glaser's work. That work covers an enormous range, including posters, corporate identity programs, the "I (Heart) NY" campaign, political buttons, illustrated children's books, prescription drug packaging, and magazine design (Glaser and Clay Felker founded "New York" magazine and ran it for many years). Glaser even spent about twenty years on supermarket design, and he talks about the value of such an apparently mundane activity, both the obvious benefit to the customers and the experience it gives the artist in talking to ordinary people. He also teaches graphic design, and he talks about the role of teachers, and several former students talk about they got from him.

The main film runs 73 minutes. There is a also a 24-minute bonus: an edited 2005 panel discussion at the School of Visual Arts of Glaser and Mirko Ilic's book The Design of Dissent: Socially and Politically Driven Graphics, with panelists Glaser, Ilic, Tony Kushner, and Gloria Steinem. The bonus provides a closer look at Glaser's political thinking and methods of advocacy, which are touched on only lightly in the main film.

I had never heard of Milton Glaser before viewing MILTON GLASER: TO INFORM AND DELIGHT.
Yes, I (not unlike many people) had seen the I (Heart) New York posters, mugs, t-shirts and other components of the campaign in the 1970s to get folks to fall in love with NYC.
I had no idea that the design had been conceptualized by Milton Glaser, an amazingly prolific and gifted artist, as a gift to the city - what's more, it was a gift that never received a penny in return. The gift shops, airport stops and numerous other stores received the $$, but for Glaser it had nothing to do with paybacks, only with paying forward.

The same can be said about many of his other designs and sources of inspiration. Milton knew he was supposed to study art, from the time he was a young boy. He could draw naked ladies (an initial draw for his friends). Glaser was much more than a voyeuristic sketcher. He had the gift to embody the essence of any figure or subject and transfer it to the page/canvass/drawing surface.
This documentary captures his versatility as an artist, as well as his rich cultural background, vibrant personality and tireless joie de vivre. Do not miss out!

One of the last truly and unselfish designers in the world, from over 40 years creating honest brands with the old school methods. An everlasting academic spirit. Rated a star less because for me, there should be more of his lifetime portfolio in the extras. Buy it design students!

Instead of a long, typical, detailed biography. This documentary comes off as heartfelt and real. It really concentrates on Glaser's work and tells a story from the analysis of other commentators including Mr. Glaser himself. A truly interesting story about a passionate and fascinating man. Kudos!

I saw this documentary on Sundance and was so captivated by this man, I now feel impelled to start buying his books. I know I'm really late to the Glaser game, especially careerwise, but it's never too late to feel inspired. Through his huge body of work alone, Mr. Glaser shows that there are no boundaries between fine art and graphic art. He is incredibly articulate, wise and talented. I, on the other hand, am not nearly articulate enough to explain why you should see this film. But if you are involved in the visual arts in any way, it will light a fire in you (if it doesn't scare and intimidate you!).

I've watched "Milton Glaser: To Delight and Inform" several times. I take inspiration from it each time. I give it five stars, but I nevertheless think it appropriate to criticize the filmmaker for eliding Glaser's (and Felker's) experience with Esquire magazine in the late 1970s. Glaser commented at the time that he was "failing in public every month" with the magazine. This was a spectacular failure; as such, it is further inspiration. For all his gifts, Milton Glaser didn't get it right all the time. Sometimes he got it spectacularly wrong.

That's worth knowing.

I hadn't realized how responsible Glaser was for the look and feel of my childhood. I don't much like it -- it makes me feel queasy -- but I appreciate and understand what he was doing, and it's a fine doc. A must for design students, I'd think.
