Event Details

 

Bob Gill, American illustrator and graphic designer. He attended the Philadelphia Museum School of Art (1948-1951), Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts (1951), City College of New York (1952, 1955). When he graduated he became a professional graphic designer in New York City.
In 1967, Gill left the partnership and assumed independent freelancing again, including teaching, filmmaking and writing childrens books. He returned to New York in 1975 to write and design Beatlemania, the largest multimedia musical up to that time on Broadway, on which he worked with Robert Rabinowitz. He also proposed a peace monument for Times Square, Gill wanted to collect military junk from all over the world, pile it 40 feet high, spray it matte black, and mount it on a block of white marble. The New York City Arts Commission did not like the idea.

For his graphic design work, Gill has won a number of awards, sold illustrations to Esquire, Architectural Forum, Fortune, Seventeen, and The Nation magazines and has illustrated childrens books and designed film titles. He has also designed for Apple Corps records, Rainbow Theater, Pirelli,CBS, Universal Pictures, Joseph Losey, Queen (now Harpers & Queen), High Times magazines and the United Nations. He was elected to the New York Art Directors Club Hall of Fame in 1991 and the Designers and Art Directors Association of London has presented him with their Lifetime Achievement Award.

He lives in New York with his wife, New York Public Radio's Sara Fishko, their son Jack, and their daughter Kate.
