Pioneering graphic designer, artist and archivist, Elaine Lustig Cohen (1927–2016) 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.
