Last Wednesday, October 22, Lou Dorfsman passed away. For forty-five years he worked at CBS, shaping everything in his and its path. Both Michael Bierut and Steve Heller have captured his life in words. What follows is a little bit of his life in images. These photographs were taken from the vast archives of his work at the Herb Lubalin Study Center in Cooper Union, Dorfsman’s alma mater. Our best wishes are with Dorfsman’s family and friends.
