 Editor’s Note: Every quarter at FIDM/Fashion Institute of Design & Merchandising, students of various majors are challenged to focus on a famous design or designer to assess its historical impact on culture and the design community in History of Design class taught by Alex Gardos. In the report below, FIDM Graphic Design Student Riva Cory reports on career of prolific graphic designer Milton Glaser, largely considered one of the most renowned designers globally.

“Before writing this report, I knew who Milton Glaser was for his contributions to graphic design, however, I was unaware of the breadth of his work and was astounded to find he was skilled in nearly every field of design,” says Corey.
