Inspiration poster

Bob Dylan

This poster was created  by Milton Glaser for inclusion in the Dylan’s greatest hits in 1967.

Milton Glaser inspires me with his entire design in a way how he used different conventions a striking image of Bob Dylan’s profile with streaming, multicoloured hair and typography.

On this poster Glaser was inspired by cut out paper silhouette self-portrait by Marcel Duchamps, which was a simple black and white profile,then Dylan’s hair its formed as bright colour Islamic painting.

It’s amazing how Milton Glaser did his own typography below the portrait saying “DYLAN” this typeface it’s called “baby teeth” created it by hand and did as the product of  graphic ideas.

Glaser used his own technique to transform a unique idea and the creative to combine one thing to another and makes it extensive.
