The Return of The Living Dead (1985)

Milton Glaser on Celluloid

Milton Glaser is American graphic design. The breadth and depth of his work stretches far and wide (co-founder of New York magazine and creator of the “I Love NY” campaign) but a couple things remain certain, the man’s ability to craft messages creatively in a manner that remains simple and to the point.  A documentary released last year ‘Milton Glaser: To Inform and Delight’ shadows him through daily activity with commentary that reveals his seemingly infinite intellect and originality.  Check out the documentary trailer above and buy/rent it through iTunes here. Also down bottom is Glaser’s TED speech, circa 1998, where he explains the use of design to make ideas new.

Thanks to the Seyna at Crane.tv for coming by and featuring us on their site.

“Boston’s most revolutionary concept store is located in a grocery store – strange but true. Crane.tv enters Bodega through its vending machine-like door as partner Oliver Mak takes us on a tour of the store and shows off his collection of limited edition footwear, streetwear, and the latest innovations in gadgets and accessories. And if you can’t get enough of Bodega, it’s also involved in a number of exciting art programmes throughout the city.”
