Paula Scher - Identity Design Today and Why the Blogosphere Should Shut Up!
Paula Scher - Identity Design Today and Why the Blogosphere Should Shut Up!
Award winning designer Paula Scher will share her views on the current state of design and social media. Sure to be engaging and thought-provoking, Scher’s talk is a rare opportunity to see one of America’s leading designers in a bold, no holds barred talk.

Paula Scher is a ‘social’ designer in the best sense of the word – her work is literally on the streets and in the buildings where people live, work and study. Her sense of humor, and her gutsy aura of realism makes for an inspirational mix.

A partner at Pentagram, Scher gave one of TED’s most popular design talks in 2012. Her work has encompassed identity design for The Public Theater, Bloomberg, Microsoft, Coca-Cola, Bausch + Lomb, Perry Ellis, the Museum of Modern Art, Jazz at Lincoln Center the New York Philharmonic, her book on MAPS, and iconic posters for the Public Theater, including the poster for the show “Bring in Da Noise, Bring in Da Funk”, which is in the Museum of Modern Art’s permanent collection.

Paula Scher is one of the world’s most acclaimed graphic designers. She began her design career as a record cover art director at Atlantic Records and CBS Records in the 1970s and 1980s. She has been a principal in the New York office of the distinguished international design consultancy Pentagram since 1991. She has designed identity and branding systems for a wide range of clients including the Public Theater, Citibank, the Museum of Modern Art, Microsoft, the Metropolitan Opera, the High Line, and the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Scher has served on the Design Commission of the City of New York since 2006. She is an established artist exhibiting worldwide, and her work is in the permanent collections of the Museum of Modern Art and other institutions. In 2013 she was honored with the National Design Award for Communication Design. She is the author of “Make It Bigger” (Princeton Architectural Press, 2002) and “MAPS” (Princeton Architectural Press, 2011).
