Paula Scher (American, b. 1948) is a graphic designer, illustrator, and painter best known for her innovative work in design. After beginning her career as an art director at Atlantic and CBS Records in the 1970s, Scher moved on to co-found design firm Koppel & Scher with Terry Koppel, eventually becoming a partner at Pentagram, where her bold, typographic style has served clients as iconic as New York’s Public Theater. Though Scher’s work in design and branding is both respected and highly recognizable—she is responsible for the graphic identities of Citibank, Shake Shack, and more—she is equally well-regarded as a fine artist, particularly for her intricate “Maps” series, first begun in the late 1990s.
