FontShop Celebrates: Women in Design

FontShop Celebrates: Women in Design | Artdictive Habits : Sustainable Lifestyle | Scoop.it

To mark International Women’s Day (March 8, 2015), FontShop will be celebrating women in design for the whole of this week.

Webgrrl's insight:

In recognition of the many talented women in the industry, for the next five days FontShop.com will see a female takeover as we turn our focus to women. Featuring foundries, typefaces and Fontlists all by women, we will also be posting daily interviews with female designers and host a type themed Twitter Q&A.
