Lynda Decker is President, and Creative Director of Decker Design, a New York City-based design consultancy. Decker is currently co-chair with Heather Stern of the AIGA Women Lead Initiative. She is a former Vice-President of the AIGA/NY chapter.
She began her career at Lubalin Peckolick Associates working as an assistant on the publication, U&lc. Later the firm merged with Pushpin Studios and she worked under the tutelage of both Alan Peckolick and Seymour Chwast. Her career then led her to spend a decade in the world of big advertising where she joined McCaffrey & McCall, Backer Spielvogel Bates and Wells Rich Green. Her work won a Clio and awards from both the One Show and the Art Director’s Club for clients such as Falcon Jet, Mercedes Benz and IBM.
Believing that there was a way to combine the wit of advertising and the discipline of design, she established Decker Design in 1996. Beginning in the living room of her apartment, she grew the firm steadily with clients such as Chase, IBM, Citigroup and Goldman Sachs. Her team has won recognition from Communication Arts, AIGA and numerous other shows.
