Jacqueline Casey

Jacqueline Casey did more in her position as a designer at MIT than most people do in a lifetime. She began working at MIT in 1955, brought on board through the suggestion of her friend and former classmate Muriel Cooper, and remained at the Institute until her death in 1992. Casey helped pioneer the institute’s Office of Design Services and acted as director for the office from 1972 until 1989. Her posters for MIT are iconic; they’re elegant and energetic, clean and creative. Casey had a real talent for depicting concepts through simple forms and type. Her posters are still an inspiration to designers. [MIT]
