S. Neil Fujita, the Godfather of Graphic Design

Steven Heller‘s got another of his slam-dunk interviews up, this time with S. Neil Fujita, the designer responsible for many, many, many album covers, book covers (like the juicy one for In Cold Blood) and The Godfather logo, which he’s still making money on:

When Paramount Pictures does a film version or Random House, which bought out the book from Putnam, does another Godfather book, I still get a design credit. In fact, before the first Godfather film opened in New York I saw a huge billboard going up in Times Square with my design on it. I actually got them to stop work on it until we were able to come to an agreement.

We’re guessing they made him an offer he couldn’t refuse.
