Rest in Peace Deborah Sussman
on 23 August 2014
The creative community lost a veteran this week with the passing of Deborah Sussman, who lost her battle with breast cancer. A longtime environmental designer, talented colorist and supergraphics pioneer, Sussman graduated from Black Mountain College and began her career as an art director in the office of Charles and Ray Eames, before going on to design the 1984 Summer Olympics identity. In 2004 she received an AIGA award for her brilliant contextual approach to graphic design.
