American designer Milton Glaser, one of the founders of New York Magazine and the author of the logo I Love New York, which became a symbol of New York, has died in the United States at the age of 91, the New York Times reports, citing his wife.
According to Glaser’s wife Cheryl, he died as a result of a stroke. Also, the designer had kidney failure.
Glaser became widely known as the author of graphic works and posters. His most famous works are considered to be a poster with American musician Bob Dylan, which the designer made for his greatest hits album in 1967, and the I Love New York logo from 1977, which eventually became a symbol of the city. Besides, in 1968, Glaser co-founded New York Magazine with editor Clay Felker. As the newspaper notes, with his colorful posters, magazine covers, books, and record envelopes, Glaser changed the “dictionary of American culture of the 1960s and 70s.”
