Paula Scher was recently presented a National Design Award by First Lady Michelle Obama. At the ceremony the First Lady quoted Paula Scher, named one of the Most Influential Designers Today by GDUSA readers. Here is a small excerpt from the speech:
“So these designers aren’t just making a fleeting, momentary impact on our lives when we happen to glimpse their work. Instead, they’re leaving a lasting impression on our hearts, in our minds, and in the way we see the world. They’re inviting us to push our boundaries, to stretch our imaginations. And they’re showing us that it’s okay to have a little fun, too. And as Paula Scher put it, one of today’s winners — she said, ‘You have to misbehave to make breakthroughs.'”
