So bummed to hear that Milton Glaser, the designer of the iconic I ❤️ NY logo, passed away on Friday at the age of 91. His logo has been copied many times by other states and institutions. The logo’s design is a textbook example of how simplicity can be a powerful means of conveying a message. Glaser updated this logo once after 9/11 with the words “more than ever” added to the end. To this day, it is one of the most recognizable tourism campaigns in the entire world. RIP to a true design legend.
