…was a designer and educator particularly important for the way in which she mediated between the discipline and the evolution of electronic communication. Crucially, she was director of the Visible Language Workshop at MIT's famous Media Lab. During her time there she was involved in planning the movement from print to typography’s digital future, as well as exploring the potential of fully integrated information environments. (c.f Information Landscapes, a lecture given at the fifth TED conference, in 1994). “I guess I’m never sure that print is truly linear,” Muriel Cooper once said; “It’s more a simultaneous medium.
