Notamuse: A New Perspective on Women Graphic Designers in Europe
|Availability:||In stock (8)|
As a response to the predominantly male presence in the design scene, this book exclusively presents works by exceptional women designers. It is not about discovering something inherently "female" and defining "feminine" design, but to counter the male-dominated discourse of the sector. The carefully selected graphic works stand on their own, ranging from commissioned assignments via free artistic projects to the area of design research. They open new perspectives on how diverse contemporary graphic design can be. This presentation is complemented by interviews conducted with 22 female designers, sociologists and design theorists. To shed light on the lacking visibility of women in the design sector, the authors especially focused in the design philosophy, perceptions, and ideals as well as the experiences encountered in everyday work situations.
