Design legend Milton Glaser demystifies his creative process in this thoughtful collection of illustrations showing his journey from sketch to finish. Glaser is a truly multidisciplinary designer working in exhibition, interior, and product designs. Sketch and Finish features a variety of projects, from little known to iconic, including the logo. Glaser writes, "The tentativeness in the act of sketching is crucial. Doubt is essential. If you already know the answer before you start, why bother? Conviction is the killer of imagination." He illuminates the crux of each work with grace and a timeless mastery of craft.
Milton Glaser (1929-2020) co-founded the revolutionary Pushpin Studios in 1954, founded New York Magazine with Clay Felker in 1968, established Milton Glaser, Inc. in 1974, and teamed with Walter Bernard in 1983 to form the publication design firm WBMG. He is the recipient of the 2004 National Design Award for Lifetime Achievement, the Fulbright Association in 2011, and, in 2009, he was the first graphic designer to receive the National Medal of the Arts award.
