New York-based designer and filmmaker Hillman Curtis, whose series of documentaries profiled leading figures in the creative industries, has died aged just 51.

Curtis passed away on April 18 after a long battle with colon cancer. His Artist Series of short films on the likes of MIlton Glaser, Paula Scher and Danile Libeskind delighted many.

In 2010 he directed Ride, Rise, Roar a documentary of David Byrne’s tour of that year. More recently he had been working with Stefan Sagmeister on The Happy Film in which Sagmeister undertakes a series of tasks, “from the sublime to the ridiculous”, designed to promote happiness.

Thank You Hillman for everything you have done to help CR and others.
