To the man that i will never meet
On the 26th of June, the world have lost another amazing Graphic Designer, and this designer may not be known to you, but I appreciate him so much.
Here’s a little story of how I got to know him.
I was still at uni back then, and I had a class with one of my favorite instructors, and in that class we were given a list of famous designers to do a research and present them in-front of the whole department. I was at his office with my bestfriend, and on that day I told him I d o not know who to choose from the list because I didnt know most of them. On that day I was wearing my favorite tshirt, I ❤️ NY. He typed a name on his screen, and asked me if I know who this person is, I said no. All what my instructor did was click on the images option on Google, and there it was. I’m not gonna lie I felt very ashamed of myself at that moment, to not know who the designer is, of the most recognizable slogan on earth, I <3 NY the T-shirt I was wearing brought me to shame, but thanks to my instructor and thanks to that shame, it brought enlightened to me and introduced me to, Milton Glaser.
I did a whole research and a presentation about him, not only that though. Even Robb Janoff, the designer of the apple logo, called me by the name of the hoodie that I was wearing, which obviously was I ❤️ NY. He even had the chance to meet him once, how did I know? yea I asked him that question.
I got to make some online friends through my xboxb, that we always game together. When I got to know that they are from NY, first thing I told them of course my dream is it visit, and if I had the chance of ever meeting Milton Glasor.
The chance now is gone Milton, I will never meet you.
I swear to God it was just a coincidence that I was wearing the I ❤️ NY T-shirt the day of your death, but I believe it was fate/ or destiny because you meant a lot to me.
Thank you Instructor Shahrayar for giving me the honor of representing him.
This is just a tribute to you, to the man who inspires me, to the man who did simple thing matter, to the man who believed.
Thank You Milton.
