Muriel Cooper (1925-1994) was a pioneering book designer, digital designer, researcher, and educator. She was the longtime art director of the MIT Press, instilling a Bauhaus-influenced design style into its many publications. She moved on to become founder of MIT’s Visible Language Workshop, and later became a co-founder of the MIT Media Lab. In 2007, a New York Times article called her “the design heroine you’ve probably never heard of” (Wikipedia).
She has broken the flat design of overlapping design in a static space with the idea of a 3D universe. Look at some of her designs that suggest a 3D space with such beautiful movement.
