How great design makes ideas new: Milton Glaser on

While we are preparing more TED2009 talks for release online, here’s a gem from our archives. At TED1998, the legendary graphic designer Milton Glaser dives deep into a new painting inspired by Piero della Francesca. From here, he muses on what makes a convincing poster: the act of breaking down an idea and making it new. (Recorded Monterey 1998 in Monterey, California. Duration: 15:14.)

Watch Milton Glaser’s talk from TED1998 on, where you can download this TEDTalk, rate it, comment on it and find other talks and performances from our archive of 360+ TEDTalks — including more talks about genomics.
