The co-founders of UnderConsideration, which includes the Brand New blog about logo design that I love, are releasing a book in December called Women of Design: Influence and Inspiration from the Original Trailblazers to the New Groundbreakers.
The book looks like a great read for women in business. Here is the snippet from Amazon.com that describes the book:
More than half of the graphic designers in the U.S. are women, yet they are less likely to be invited to speak at conferences or to offer expert opinions to the media. Their award-winning work is seen everywhere, but with few exceptions, they are not celebrated in the same way as their male counterparts. Women of Design explores this contradiction while at the same time shining a light on the work of women designers, both industry veterans and influential newcomers. By asking the handful of female design stars to identify other talented women, then asking those women to suggest more still, Women of Design creates a web of influence and excellence that proves these women are worthy of attention.
I’m looking forward to reading this book when it comes out! What do you think?
