Ten Things | Milton Glaser

How did I never come across the Ten Things I have learned by Milton Glaser? Did I study Graphic Design under a rock? I must have.

(thank you savita)

  1. Oh god I love this! It’s the only thing I ever give to students that’s deliberately about graphic design. Thanks for posting it.

  2. Oh my you aren’t alone. I never came across this during my graphic design studies. How sad.

  3. Thanks Swiss Miss. I want to read this every day.

  4. this is speaking to me right at this very time of my life. thanks so much for the link.

  5. Thank you, I have just left a job and a boss that I hated but tolerated for 4 years. Was feeling down but felt so much better after reading this.

  8. Thank you so much for sharing this. It saved my day and just like to elisabetha, this really spoke to me at this point where I am as a designer right now. Thank you, thank you!

  9. The book he mentioned in his list is “Rules for Aging: A Wry and Witty Guide to Life” by Roger Rosenblatt

  10. I think I read this essay about once a month, and it always seems to keep me on the right track. He’s a treasure for sure.

  11. We either went to the school or I was much to nearsighted at the time to care. Thanks for posting I feel a bit more well rounded today!

  12. I designed a little typographic list of The Ten Things I have learned. Check it out over at campsite > (http://bit.ly/9UvdOL)

  13. Great list – not sure about the test listed under Point #3 – tired vs. energised.
    My wife suffers from depression and is always tired…even after we have a great time…granted it’s a general test, but it just made me wonder if I’m nourishing or toxic.
