Hall of Femmes: Paula Scher

Paula Scher began her design career at Atlantic and CBS Records in the 1970s. In 1984 she co-founded Koppel & Scher, and in 1991 she joined the design firm Pentagram NY as a partner. She has worked with identity and branding systems, environmental graphics, packaging and publication designs for a broad range of clients. In 2001 she was awarded the profession’s highest honor, the AIGA medal, in recognition of her contributions to the design field. In 2006 she was awarded the Type Directors Club Medal. She seems pretty cool. And this book confirmed that for us. Like everything of hers that we’ve read, this is a good and smart and funny read.
