Born in New York in 1929, Milton Glaser is an American graphic designer who founded Push Pin Studios in New York where he worked with Seymour Chwast. He left in 1970 and founded Milton Glaser Inc in New York in 1974. He taught classes at SVA, where according to Michael Samuel he said to his students: There are three responses to a piece of design - yes, no, and WOW! Wow is the one to aim for.—Luc Devroye at SCS.

"The silhouette cutout by Marcel Duchamp was in the back of my mind when I created the Dylan poster. The other significant graphic element in this piece is the quality, shape, and color of the hair. In some ways these elements were influenced by my interest in Islamic painting. The combination of the Duchamps portrait and Near Eastern design elements produced a style some now consider peculiarly American". From Graphic Design, by Milton Glaser.—101bananas.
