beloved husband of Jessica Weber, died on August 3rd from results from a catastrophic fall in his Connecticut home. Born October 3, 1940, Alan drove fast cars, loved great food and traveled the world voraciously. A revolutionary in the world of graphic design, mentored by and then the partner of design great Herb Lubalin, Alan was the father of the revolutionary "graphic expressionism" - he taught type to talk, and his calligraphic typography put the human touch back into design. Late in life he became a professional painter, exhibiting extensively in America and abroad. His sly humor, his keen observation of people and our society, and his enormous appetite for life itself were the spark of his creative ability, as well as the reason he was so deeply loved by so many people. Alan is survived by Ms. Weber, his sister Gail Rae-Garwood (Paul) and his brother Paul (Judy). He will be keenly missed. A memorial service will be held on Wednesday, August 9 at 11am at Temple Emanu-El of New York City, Fifth Avenue at 65th Street.
