It is said that Moses died on his 120th birthday. Ever since, dying on the same day you were born is seen as a sign you have made the most of your mission in life. This past weekend, graphic design legend Milton Glaser did just that and the fable has proven true again.
A born-and-bred New Yorker, Glaser brought whimsy, color, and life to the shared worlds of graphic design and commercial art. His most iconic designs are a part of our shared visual narrative, like the "I <3 NY" logo he developed in 1977 to promote the state and city's rebirth.
