Paula Scher: Make it Bigger

Am currently reading Make it Bigger by Paula Scher. Is fantastic.
I particularly enjoy her diagrams, charts and whimsical genealogy trees. As she explains at a certain point in her career ( around 1985) the act of concocting complicated systems of useless information became an important and personal part of her design vocabulary.
For me she is the Queen of Data Visualization.

ps. glass o wine, apartment in nyc and paula scher.
doesnt get much better than that.

Family trees are most important to future generations than the current as some families does not have record of all their family history. Family tree diagrams are the best way to illustrate genealogy structure of a family. You can create family tree charts using family tree maker . Find more family tree templates in the diagram community of Creately.
