Each year, the Type Directors Club selects a prominent design studio or designer to curate the latest Typography book and select the winners of their annual typography competition. Tremendous creative freedom is given to each studio, allowing this annual to evolve dramatically from year to year. This year's Typography book will be designed by American graphic designer and artist Paula Scher. Paula Scher has been a principle in the New York office of Pentagram design consultancy since 1991. During the 1970s, she designed album covers for CBS Records and Atlantic Records, before moving to magazines, at which point she began working for Time Inc. As a designer known for her packing and publication designs, Scher has made a name for herself by developing graphic identities and branding systems for an extensive range of clients, including Tiffany & Co, Coca-Cola, Bausch & Lomb, Citibank, the Museum of Modern Art, the Metropolitan Opera, New York Times Magazine and many others. Throughout the course of her career, Scher has received numerous industry awards and honors, such as the Chrysler Design Award for Innovation in Design in 2000, the AIGA Medal from the American Institute of Graphic Arts in 2001, and the Type Directors Club Medal in 2006. Her album covers have also earned her four Grammy Award nominations, and in 1998 she was inducted into the Arts Directors Club Hall of Fame. Her work is now part of the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art.
