As part of our 50th Anniversary celebration GDUSA has conducted a series of surveys within the design community. This time around we asked our readers to tell us their favorite magazine designs of the past 50 years. Let us know if we missed any of your favorites.

Philadelphia: For the first time since its inception, the Polycube, the top annual award of the Philadelphia Art Director’s Club, went to a person in the graphics field, Milton Glaser, head of Pushpin Studios and design consultant of New York magazine. Milton Glaser was chosen because the board felt that he represented “one of the strongest single influences in graphics and the total communication arts industry.”
We couldn’t agree more! GDUSA readers named Milton Glaser the most influential designer of the past half-century in in a recent anniversary survey.
Today is the actual date of GDUSA’s 50th Anniversary, the moment the first edition rolled off the printing press.
We like a party as much as anyone, so we’ve been celebrating all year; we’ll continue to do so right on until the final moments of 2013 fade away. To honor the community we serve, we’ve conducted a series of 50th Anniversary surveys to more than 40,000+ creative professionals about who you respect and what you admire. These have truly resonated, not as scientific truths but as fun, informational and provocative lists. We reprise some of the results here today and announce new findings.
Thanks to all of you for putting up with us for this past half century; wait ’till you see what we have planned for the next 50 years.
