“My work is play. And I play when I design. I even looked it up in the dictionary, to make sure that I actually do that, and the definition of “play,” number one, was “engaging in a childlike activity or endeavor,” and number two was “gambling.” And I realize I do both when I’m designing.” –Paula Scher

BOTTOM: Paula Scher - ‘The World’ (1998). Do you trust this map? This acrylic painting contains all the same information as a more ‘legitimate’ world map: the only difference is in aesthetics. Its most standout features are the medium used, its dense visual hierarchy, and its ‘distorted’ text and geography. Cartographic subject matter, done in a non-cartographic style.
