Artists and designers have paid tribute to Milton Glaser, who died on Friday – the day of his 91st birthday. One of the most celebrated graphic designers in the US, Glaser is perhaps best known for his famous I ❤ NY logo, designed in 1977 to promote tourism in New York. 

One of Glaser's other much-imitated works is his 1967 poster of Bob Dylan, which featured a silhouette of the musician with brightly coloured locks of hair. Glaser was also design director of New York Magazine, which he co-founded in 1968. "He just kept hitting the bull’s-eye, again and again," the magazine's obituary said.
