Women of Design

Despite the huge volume of work produced by graphic designers around the world, in publications, conferences and other public realms, women designers tend to be overshadowed by their male counterparts. "Women of Design", written by Bryony Gomez-Palacio and Armin Vit, is a book that brings attention to the work, careers and contributions of women designers, writers, teachers and entrepreneurs around the world.

The female graphic designers in this book are divided into three groups representative of the time in which their influence was most pronounced: Groundbreakers, Pathfinders and Trailblazers. These three generations helped shape the modern landscape of design. This book explores the work, ideals and ventures that have helped define the last fifty years of the graphic design profession. The book provides an opportunity to learn about the women who helped establish design’s relevance, importance and impact — and the ones who carry their tradition into new territory.
