Make It Bigger Review
- April 2, 2008LeslieI was expecting just a monograph (lots of pictures of design projects) and was surprised but happy to find a great deal of very blunt writing about the ups and downs of working for difficult clients and in power-struggle-ridden corporate hierarchies. Good read so far, and very surprising design work.more
- March 31, 2008LoriI love it when famous designers share their stories, including bad moments. It makes me feel less lonely ;-)
- July 15, 2015JennaAn inspiring collection of anecdotes and artwork from the career of an innovative designer. As design student, you don't often get to learn about famous female designers. This was such a treat! I am so glad that I took the time to get to know Scher's work. This book was a joy to read and will serve as a reminder to reinvigorate and reinvent my own designs as I enter the workforce.more
- December 28, 2010Iancu BarbarasaOne of the best books to read if you're new in the field or just want to learn how a designer's career feels like.
- October 1, 2014Viktoriya TsoyIt was a terrific read. It truly makes Paula more human and not just a praised design celebrity. There's some great advice about the business part of the design world that many don't see until getting there. Paula has an interesting story to tell which many can learn from. It was a surprisingly fast read with beautiful reproductions of Paula's work along with some fun diagrams which Paula uses to describe structural aspects of design.more
- August 2, 2016NicoletaBrilliant book which lets you take a peak at Paula Scher's thinking and activity throughout the years. Has lots of examples of her work as well as practical advice on how to deal with the politics of being a graphic designer. Absolutely love it!
- August 20, 2007R.FriendTerrific overview of work from one of the most influential and respected designers in the business. My only complaint? It wasn't big enough. ;) Scher's wonderful work easily could have warranted a larger volume.
- March 5, 2008Katiei honestly think that paula scher (maybe along with tibor kalman for colors) is the first designer i was ever enamored with. when her public theater and stomp posters went up in the 90s, that might have been a seminal moment.
- November 1, 2012MeiqimichelleLoved it loved it loved it (and, naturally, while reading did actually have a client as me to 'make it bigger'). Great insight into what it is like to work in the design field, and in particular how to manage office politics. Full of quotes and kindness.more
- June 2, 2008EllenPaula Scher is the most influential woman designer on earth. This book shows why. It's a designer's monograph with real content and purpose.

- May 25, 2008TonyThis book made me quit my corporate job because it was impossible to get through the layers. Ironically, I checked the book out from that same corporation’s library. Awesome.
