Graphic Design: Super blog showcases amazing female design talent

Last weekend was International Women’s Day, a worldwide celebration of extraordinary female talent and a call-to-action for equality. But it’s easy to be assuaged by such high profile initiates and lose sight of how much more work there is to do, and stats like this stop you in your tracks; when Tori Hann went to the prestigious Rhode Island School of Design in 2013 she found that although 71% of the graphic design department were women, female designers accounted for just six per cent of those designers studied as part of the curriculum.

And so Women of Graphic design was born, an ongoing online resource “meant to be a source for learning and sharing, and ultimately, a platform to spark discussion.”

Tori and her co-curator Kathleen Sleboda explain: “It’s not the problem of just one institution. Though there were and are many men to impact the history and world of graphic design, there have been great female designers right along side them. In fact, the National Education Association reports that 54% of working designers are women. But why is a whole group being ignored in institutionalised design history?”

As ever with resources like this there are names we know well alongside a host of great talent to discover for the first time. And of course this shouldn’t have to exist in 2014, but my word we’re glad it does.
