NYTimes Editors Choose Six Posters Designed by AMT students asked to reimagine the cover of Arthur Miller's "Death of a Salesman"

Written by:


The cover of the original script of Arthur Miller’s “Death of a Salesman” shows a stooped-over Willy Loman, briefcase in hand, standing under a glaring spotlight with his back to the viewer. The image, designed by Joseph Hirsch, is considered a classic, and the image of a salesman has been reimagined in artwork for productions of the show for decades.

The New York Times recently asked students at Parsons to come up with their own versions of posters for the show. Of the entries received, below are six posters chosen by the editors as standouts, with comments from each designer about their inspiration and technique.

These six chosen works were chosen.
