Recognizing Women's Genius

Recognizing Women's Genius

Ellen Lupton, Sheila Levrant de Bretteville, Paula Scher, Tina Roth Eisenberg, Debbie Millman, Julia Hoffmann, Veronique Vienne, Alissa Walker. They are all contributors or are otherwise featured in the book Women in Graphic Design 1890–2012. A success in Germany, the work, by Dr. Gerde Breuer and Julia Meer, has finally arrived in the U.S. The authors raises questions: why so few women feature in the history of design, why so few women speak at conferences, why successful design women are often forgotten, and what are the effects of gender on design work? A working theory: female graphic designers have been working actively and successfully, but the artificial synthesis of masculinity and artistic genius has repeatedly prevented women – with few exceptions – to be recognized in ‘official’ design history. This richlly illustrated volume seeks to fill the gap with biographies, essays and discussions of the contribution of women to graphic design. LEARN MORE >
