50 Iterations: I love NY More Than Ever, Milton Glaser
New York will always hold a very special place in my heart; Milton Glaser created the “I Love NY More Than Ever” poster shortly after 9/11 with the intention of bringing a sense of support, unity and community to New Yorkers facing tragedy, loss and fear.
Because of my love for New York, I chose to work with this poster to create 50 original iterations of Glaser’s work. I was also able to draw a parallel to the COVID-19 pandemic as I experienced how New York handled it first hand, living in the heart of Manhattan. New Yorker’s came together in song and support for one another.
With the horrors of COVID-19 spreading, and the 20th anniversay of 9/11 approaching I decided to make New York Metro Card designs out of the compositions that created.
“One belongs to New York instantly. One belongs to it as much in five minutes as in five years” - Thomas Wolfe.
