The poster design for American painting from the Metropolitan of art, he just showed 2 elements, brush and sketch of American flag, into the poster. Not only create curiosity but also communicate really well to the viewer. The simplest is the hardest solution to design but Danziger made look like effortless. His mentioned “I am concerned with finding an image that is visually strong and aesthetically gratifying yet so pertinent to the idea that it becomes difficult to separate form from content.” He cares much about quality than quantity, he preferred to do fewer projects and get control over production of each piece. “Designing is a source of much satisfaction and many frustrations, but I have always felt that it makes one useful and very special-and that of course provides the greatest satisfaction.”His quality of his work can be seen below from the corporate identity, advertisements, book covers, posters, and packaging design.
