Remembering Milton Glaser

The most significant things are not verbal, they’re not narrative. They’re something else. They are in the realm of feeling, expression, and art. It’s one of the reasons that the design profession is worthwhile. Every once in a while, you really get an opportunity to make things better than they were before.

– Milton Glaser

The interval between looking and seeing is one of communication’s most profound issues. Designers often comment that in the act of creating what turns out to be their best work, they often experience a sense of doubt and confusion. How could it be otherwise? Certainty is a closing of the mind. To create the new, requires doubt. Or, to quote old man Picasso, “Art is a lie that reveals the truth.”

– Milton Glaser

My adventure has all been in my mind. The great adventure has been thinking. I love to think about things. I think that the lack of drama in my life has produced a platform for me to be fundamentally adventurous in my thinking.
