Poster giveaway – Milton Glaser: To Inform & Delight

22 May 2009

Arthouse Films reached out to us the other day to help promote their upcoming film, Milton Glaser: To Inform & Delight. They’ve kindly sent us two movie posters signed by Milton Glaser (measuring 27″ x 39.5″), which we are raffling off. Just leave a comment on this post and we’ll pick two of you at random on June 1. Please be 18+ and live in the US.

The film is premiering tonight in New York City at Cinema Village. It will be playing next in San Francisco, June 19.

*Update* Here is the current list of release dates and venues:

New York City: Cinema Village, May 22nd
San Francisco: The Roxie, June 19th
Boston: MFA, July 2nd
Chicago: Gene Siskel Film Center, June 12th
Denver: Starz Film Center, June 12th
Albuquerque: Guild Cinema, June 27th and 28th
Las Vegas: AIGA, June 18th


For many, Milton Glaser is the personification of American graphic design. Best known for co-founding New York Magazine and the enduring I ♥ NY campaign, the full breadth of Glaser’s remarkable artistic output is revealed in this documentary portrait, MILTON GLASER: TO INFORM AND DELIGHT. From newspapers and magazine designs, to interior spaces, logos, and brand identities, to his celebrated prints, drawings, posters and paintings, the documentary offers audiences a much richer appreciation for one of the great modern renaissance men.

Artfully directed by first time filmmaker Wendy Keys, the film glances into everyday moments of Glaser’s personal life and captures his immense warmth and humanity, and the boundless depth of his intelligence and creativity.

I have always wondered if he spelled out the name “Elvis” in the hair on purpose. I have never seen a mention of it, but once you see it, it seems obvious.

Mr. Glaser is one of nicest people who frequent the farmers’ market. His work is everywhere and it is brilliant. He is a true American Legion
