Happy Birthday to Deborah Sussman!

SEGD's only winner of both the Gold Arrow Award and the Fellow Award, Deborah Sussman celebrates her birthday on May 26! That's also Memorial Day so an image of her in stars-and-stripes specs seems appropriate.

Deborah is well remembered by SEGD for sharing an image of her Swiss yogurt breakfast in her Gold Arrow acceptance presentation. In the larger world, she is known as a pioneer in environmental graphic design for creating arresting visual imagery and designing its highly imaginative applications for architectural and public spaces. With her husband and partner in Sussman/Prejza, she has led the firm in many memorable projects including the look of the 1984 Los Angeles Olympics.

Check out the treasure trove of images in a recent designboom interview.

Happy birthday, Deborah!
