Lou Dorfsman’s mural for the CBS cafeteria, from Eye no. 20 vol. 5
Lou Dorfsman died last week at 90.
The Web is full of tributes (old and recent) to the great CBS art director, including Steven Heller’s obit in the New York Times, Michael Bierut’s ‘The Four Lessons of Lou Dorfsman’ on Design Observer and Jim Schachterle’s ‘The Wall that Lou Dorfsman Built’ on Speak Up.
In Spring 1996, Eye published an Archive piece
(see spread, above) about his celebrated ‘Gastrotypographicalassemblage’ (Eye no. 20 vol. 5).
