Women of Design

Influence and Inspiration From the Original Trailblazers to the New Groundbreakers

By Armin Vit and Bryony Gomez-Palacio

Format: Paperback

SKU# Z1946

Details

The immense body of work produced by graphic designers around the world is astoundingly varied, rich and widely celebrated. Yet in publications, conferences, judging panels and other public realms, women designers tend to be outnumbered by their men counterparts whose appearances, work and achievements are constantly in the spotlight—luckily, it's a reversing trend. While Women of Design does not attempt to relieve the imbalance, it does bring full attention to the wonderful work, careers, and contributions of women designers, writers, teachers and entrepreneurs around the world.

The women in this book have been divided into three groups, representative of the time in which their influence was most heartily felt: Groundbreakers, Pathfinders and Trailblazers. These three generations have helped shape the modern landscape of design.

Included are interviews with:

  • April Greiman
  • Deborah Sussman
  • Louise Fili
  • Ann Willoughby
  • Ellen Lupton
  • Jennifer Sterling
  • Debbie Millman
  • Paula Scher
  • Jessica Helfand
  • Margo Chase
  • Luba Lukova
  • Petrula Vrontikis
  • Sharon Werner
  • Paola Antonelli
  • and Marian Bantjes

Explore the work, ideals and ventures—all at the helm of these women—that have helped define the last 50 years of the graphic design profession, as represented by the women who helped establish design's relevance, importance and impact and the ones that carry their tradition into new territory.

What Print Magazine's Executive Editor, Mason Currey, has to say:

The duo behind the Austin firm Under Consideration takes a much-needed look at the many groundbreaking women designers, writers, teachers, and entrepreneurs who have produced amazing work and helped to define the profession.
