After posting on two very neat, minimal designers I decided to add the extremely loud and experimental designer Paula Scher. One of the most well known female graphic designers of our time, she studied at the Tyler School of Art, and has a doctorate degree from the the Corcoran College of Art and Design. She has been art director for Columbia records, designed well known logo's such as Tiffany's and Citibank, and done work for The Public Theater, Target, Bloomberg and the Botanic Garden to name a few. She has received numerous graphic design awards, taught for at the School of Visual Arts for over twenty years, and has work in musuem collections such as the Museum of Modern Art, The Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum, and the Centre Georges Pompidou, Paris.
She is currently a partner at Pentagram, and has been crossing over into fine arts with paintings of huge, colourful maps. (above), exhibited at Maya Stendhal Gallery New York.
