Looking back over Glaser’s colorful, textured career, it becomes clear how anemic the dominant commercial graphic design of the twenty-tens has been. Lately, we’ve experienced a wave of flattened, pastel-colored, thinly outlined graphics for every Silicon Valley startup, from Casper to Away, Uber, and Hinge. Generic humans are seen undertaking tasks made convenient by the companies’ apps; the aesthetic promotes a seamlessness that separates us from worldly concerns like surveillance, ethics, or politics. The illustrations encourage us to consume rather than to think, let alone to think twice. They do not, in the slightest, take responsibility for what they are communicating, as Glaser mandated. Graphic design alone can’t solve problems, but it can help push us out of a stultifying conformity.
