False starts, wrong roads, and missed turns are part of every adventure. The miraculous is to be found or made in the searching itself. Milton Glaser
New York, NY (PRWEB) January 25, 2013
NEW YORK CITY, NY (January 25th, 2013) Kikkerland Design was honorably asked to work with one of the most celebrated American graphic designers, Milton Glaser. Mr. Glaser is best known for his I ♥ NY logo, Bob Dylan poster, co-founding New York Magazine and $30 cork presenter. Milton designed three clocks that consist of a variation of rotating disks that reveal time in a pleasing graphical way. Kikkerland produced a video for their website showing the movements speeded up. The clocks were sold exclusively at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in December but will be available to stores around the world.
