Sam’s Portrait of Milton Glaser used for the graniph t-shirt project

Wednesday, May 2nd, 2012

Sam Haskins was a huge Milton Glaser fan. He subscribed to the ‘Push Pin Graphic‘ (a design newsletter produced by Milton Glaser and Seymour Chwast) way back in the days of his Johannesburg studio and from the time Sam set up his London studio in 1968 he had Milton Glaser art on the walls. Glaser images are still hanging in the house to this day. Sam would have been tickled to see his portraits of Glaser being used by graniph for their collaboration project with the legendary NY designer and illustrator.

Levis genius from its customers

Saturday, March 31st, 2012

One of the good things about Sam’s new presence on Tumblr – apart from being included in that vibrant visual community – is that I very quickly get to see which specific images are most popular.

In the seventies Levis had a competition and a travelling exhibition of denim decorated by their customers. The results were terrific and I posted a couple to Tumblr which proved really popular, so here is a bigger selection from that shoot. Sadly the executives at Levis got cold feet over the nudes and the photographs were never used commercially.
