#milton glaser

The great Milton Glaser on failure. Basically success can be limiting, and failure helps you learn. Watching this, and this documentary, Glaser seems to have attained a unique mix of playful curiosity, calm deliberation, emotional awareness, and a little bit of the rascal. I hope to be so cool (without caring at all about being cool, which is kind of the same thing) when I’m older.

Cover art for Chris Smither’s I’m A Stranger Too. Milton Glaser designed the sleeve for Smither’s Don’t Drag It On, and I’m wondering if he had something to do with this as well. The bold colors and whimsicality here certainly seem Glaser-ish. And speaking of Glaser, if you haven’t seen this nice little documentary about the man that’s streaming on Netflix, then maybe you should. He’s a lovely guy.
