“The world is mad. When we look at it the fantastic thing about the human race is that we learn to cope with this crazy place and adapt. On the horizon is a movement towards equality for everyone, equal rights and equal opportunity and equal freedoms, if these things are just available for the half that is male then we aren’t making progress. To make progress in times like this takes bravery, courage and needs the type of people who are willing to stick their neck out and do things differently. Agencies like 18 Feet and Rising are doing away with the outdated creative department structures to modernise agencies and further the cause of women in adland, now that’s progress. The world has moved on; creative departments and the entire industry need to keep up or else we’re all just standing still and going nowhere in this mad, mad, mad world.” Dani Brown, Digital Creative, SheSays awards coordinator.



“A profession that has been long dominated by men is changing. There are simply more women. There are more women who are terrific designers, more women running their own businesses, more women corporate executives, more women changing the scale of things and appearing out of scale. There are more women in design groups, more women’s panels, more women mentoring women and looking for women role models.” •



In a survey conducted by Influence, results showed that out of

50 design students and graduates, 100% could identify 3 male graphic designers. Out of those same design students and graduates, 72.5% could not name a single female graphic designer. Influence has been created in collaboration with paper merchant G F Smith and network Kerning the Gap to raise awareness of this gender inequality in the graphic design industry. The idea behind this book is to allow female graphic designers the opportunity to see and gain notable female role models who have made a career within the industry. In a talk by Designers Breakfast in 2012, titled “Where are the Women?” Jack Renwick, former Creative Director for The Partners, argued that “less female exposure gives others less confidence, as they have no one to aspire to be.” From the same talk, Nat Hunter, co-director of Design at the Royal Society for the Encouragement of Arts, Manufactures and Commerce, explained that in order to change the industry, women need to put themselves out there and become role models for others. “Change happens by small things happening,” and public female exposure is a good place to begin. This book aims to celebrate women of many nationalities and disciplines, from set-making to web design, digital design to paper craft. The book features women in all levels of the industry, from junior designer, freelance, creative director and co-founder / partner. The reason behind this is to expose and educate individuals on women making the industry work for them in all disciplines, in all levels, and for you, the reader, to be able to identify with someone. The hope is you will gain a role model or two after reading this book, because there is someone like you here, and they have been able to find their feet in the design industry. And you can too.

How did you get to where you are right now? I simply worked extremely hard, long hours, and invested a lot of my time, mind and energy into design and to being the best I could.

When I got an internship with Behance in New York, and was given the opportunity to work on the 99U Conference materials. This then followed on with a job offer, and I was able to work my way up to Lead Brand & Communications Designer, which was a very proud moment in my career.

Conversations about gender equality are on the rise. With media coverage, notable celebrities and initiatives trying to invoke change of current gender constraints, the topic has become prevalent in everyone’s lives. The design industry is one of many that has not yet reached a gender balance. One such problem is that of lack of exposure: women in the design industry are left behind the scenes, often not seen amongst the “celebrities� of the industry. This book aims to celebrate women of all ages, nationalities and disciplines, for the creative work they have made, and give them the exposure they so rightly deserve.
