Pioneering graphic designer, artist and archivist, Elaine Lustig Cohen…

…is recognized for her body of design work integrating European avant-garde and modernist influences into a distinctly American, mid-century manner of communication. She is a living link between design’s modernist past and its continually changing present. — Steven Heller, Elaine Lustig Cohen: Biography (AIGA Medalist)

I was happy to hear that the designers and graphic design historians Patricia Belen and Greg D’ Onofrio completed a first-rate site devoted to the life and work of Elaine Lustig Cohen.

I was just beginning to start my studies in graphic design at Parsons in 1964. I noticed the catalogues and poster designs that The Jewish Museum were beginning to produce after attending a Jasper Johns’ exhibit. Most of collateral work for the Museum exhibitions were designed by Lustig Cohen at that time.

Here are a few samples of her work that she did between 1957 to 1964.
