Milton Glaser Draws & Lectures Filmed at Milton's studio in 2006.
Denise Johnson's insight:
"Curiously, people think that the difficulty of drawing is in making things look accurate. But accuracy is the least significant part of drawing. But, you have to learn how to draw accurately before you can do anything else. Then, you can begin to think about drawing expressively. That's another game entirely." — Milton Glaser
How did typography emerge and evolve from old-fashioned Gothic script to the much reviled Comic Sans? An animated short by Ben Barrett-Forrest, a Yukon-based designer, explores the history of typography in a nifty video.
"The documentary accomplishes what many films that consist of mostly talking heads do not. Through the individual stories, a larger narrative surfaces about this art form and its fate over time. In many ways, it is more than that. It is a cautionary tale about the head-long rush into a technology-driven time and a meditation on what’s lost along the way. It is a reminder to look around and recognize the physical history in our presence every day." -Mary Louise Schumacher
