Female Designer from Germany
I was very happy to have the possibility to hold a speech about female designer from Austria and Germany. Did you know, in german there is always a second word for female profession like actor/actresse. So it is for designer: Designerin. But if you google that special female form for designer you still only find man. That made me and my collegue Miriam think about it and how to maybe change that.
We did some research about interesting designer from Austria and Germany and found these ten. Some of them are already dead and some are just about to start a bright career but we found them all very cool. I did some portrait illustrations and together we hold this kind of pitch speech in front of members of the German goverment and some 100 more interested persons.
These are the Designers we were talking about:
Ariane Spanier: graphic designer
Anni Albers: textile artist
Laura Breiling: illustrator
Esra Gülmen: communication designer
Alma Siedhoff Buscher: interior designer
Nushin Yazdani: Interaction designer
Marianne Brandt: interieur designer
Jil Sander: fashion designer
Margarete Schütte Lihotzky: architect
Eva Wünsch & Luisa Stömer: graphic designer
