About This Class

Paula Scher, partner in the New York office of Pentagram, walks us through her process of creating a liquid identitya recognizable, dynamic branding system that can be adapted across mediums.

In this 70-minute class, you’ll think about researching an organization’s goals, developing a series of design solutions, simplifying them to their essence, and stretching them to their limits as they apply to animation, products, signage, architecture, and more.

Go behind-the-scenes to see how the liquid identities of some of Paula’s most respected projects came to life (including Jazz at Lincoln Center, the Type Directors Club, and Microsoft Windows), explore her latest re-branding for the Philadelphia Museum of Art, and join her at the Public Theater in Manhattan—her most iconic, long-standing project to date.
