Hello ! As there are great but perhaps not always well known women Type Designers today I would be interested to know if anybody has infos about women in the History of Typography and Type Design.
I am also interested about this forum Type Design womens experience in their work relation with the industry.
Thanks in advance for any little information in these areas.
If you’re interested in the graphic design side of things Type has a feature article about art director Cipe Pineles: https://www.typemag.org/post/cipe-pineles
See also Fiona and Alice talking about the project at ATypI 2018.
And see, of course, relevant articles on the excellent Alphabettes website, e.g. 'First/early female typeface designers'.
In his own research, David Shields is discovering that women were also very involved in the production of wood type all the way back to the 19th century. He mentions it in this talk.
