LED BY EXAMPLE is a (graphic design focused) campaign that rallies for (1) more women at the head of our classrooms and (2) more women included in the history of design education started by Farah Kafei & I.
As part of the campaign, two events took place during the last week of Women's History month in 2018 at Pratt Institute.
Missing Pages is an installation which discovered, collected, and compiled the work and contribution of (10) women who shaped graphic design but are not credited or represented nearly enough. The information presented on these pages was sourced from a variety of articles and books, and then carefully pieced together to create a reconciled history textbook page.
Against All Odds
Against All Odds was a panel discussion with leading women in the industry focusing on gender disparity in graphic design education and its effects. We got to join in discussion and hear Carly Ayres, Natasha Jen, Ellen Lupton, and Tracy Ma. The event was free and open to the public.
