Muriel Cooper worked across four decades at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in overlapping roles as a graphic designer, teacher, and researcher.

As the first Design Director of the MIT Press, Cooper established a comprehensive publishing program and designed books like The Bauhaus (1969) and Learning from Las Vegas (1972). As co-founder of the Visible Language Workshop, she taught experimental printing, tested large-format Polaroid photography, and integrated video systems in MIT's Department of Architecture. At the MIT Media Lab, she developed some of the earliest computer interfaces and educated a generation of designers. [1]
