He’s a Pioneer and a Leader, all at the same time.You might know him for being the guy who created the “I Love ( Heart ) NY” Logo, which is completely iconic and has been made into 934 million parodies. In fact, it’s still the most popular image today at all the New York City Tourist Centers. He also created this very famous poster of Bob Dylan, shown up above, that is equally iconic. He designed the DC bullet logo used by DC Comics from 1977 to 2005. The list could go on and on. Also, back in 1968 he founded “New York” magazine, which is totally great & still being published today.
