Design icon Milton Glaser currently has an exhibition called Just Enough Is More: The Graphic Design Of Milton Glaser at BYU’s Museum of Art. At SVA Milton was my thesis advisor, teacher and mentor. Not only is he brilliant but also funny and kind. If you live in Utah it would be well worth your time to visit the museum and see the exhibit before October 7th. His wisdom and insight into the world of art, design and life is vast and I think you’d walk away uplifted.
By the way, this is a significant exhibition for BYU. Because designers mostly work in the background (as opposed to artists who are as well-known as their art) it’s difficult to communicate how important Milton Glaser is to modern design without comparing him to an artist like Renoir or Matisse. You ask any designer to name a designer and Milton will be one of the first three named. A big congrats to BYU for bringing him in and making it work.
