Paula Scher Conversation

For class on Thursday, Feb 23, we’re changing pace and focusing on design and historical style as practiced by Paula Scher. Scher, a principal at Pentagram, is giving a lecture on typography in Meyerson on Thursday at 530 and we’ve got her for an hour or so for a conversation on design. She has a new book, MAPS, and if there is time maybe we can show her some of your mapping projects.

Please read these two short essays about design, style and history:
Borrowed Design Ch.4-1
No More Rules, 79-81

And view these sites, short videos:
