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:

Traditionally, the design industry has been very much dominated by men, and whilst the number of female graduates studying design subjects is on the increase, the world of design (and in particular that of type design) is still very much populated by men.

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.
