Six minutes well-spent — Milton Glaser talking about art and design.
A few quotes:
“Where am I going with design? That’s a hard question, because none of us has really the ability to understand our path until it’s over.
“My idea about graphic designers and social commentary is that, that is part of the practice. I’ve always believed that, because you have access to peoples’ minds and you communicate to people… there is a corresponding responsibility — the responsibility of being a good citizen.
“If you have the ability to transfer ideas from one point to another, those should be ideas that cause no harm.
“You want to do things that have some relationship to your community, to your family, to your city, to your country, to the world.”
— MILTON GLASER
