Gail Anderson, graphic designer, teacher and writer is definitely a fly woman to know. Her contributions to design are priceless, inspiring and everlasting. She studied graphic design at the School of Visual Arts and later designed spreads for Rolling Stone. In 2004 Gail left the magazine for a creative director position at SpotCo, where she now designs theater posters and other print material for major Broadway shows. Gail also teaches graphic design at SVA.
