The Push Pin Graphic #85 (1980) "Luck"


Push Pin Studios is a graphic design and illustration studio formed in New York City in 1954. Cooper Union graduates Milton Glaser, Seymour Chwast, Reynold Ruffins, and Edward Sorel founded the studio.

In 1955, Push Pin Studios started a freeform publication which was sent to friends and clients. In 1976, the Push Pin Graphic changed its format to a bimonthly—continuing publication until 1981. A limited number of copies from that period are still available.

Featured articles and fiction, edited by Ken Robbins, supported the theme for each issue. The Graphic was art directed and designed by Seymour Chwast. His illustrations appeared as well as the work of other award-winning illustrators represented by Push Pin.
