12 Amazing Women Designers !


 

Susana Machicao Pacheco and Marina Córdova Alvéstegui  have started a beautiful community with women designers, made for women! They gather all women in the design field with the purpose of impeling and promoting women’s work on a worldwide level. The two ladies want to maximize women capacities in equal conditions.

Carole Guevin said: “Gender has got nothing to do with talent! Are women still under represented today? Yes! Needing more limelight? Yes! Meet women who rock the design industry… with more than pink design!”

Fanette Mellier

French graphic designer Fanette Mellier is widely recognised for her highly contemporary designs for print. She has contributed to many magazines and graphic festivals and her works have been displayed in numerous contemporary art museums and centres, such as the Centre Pompidou in Paris.

After completing her studies at the Graduate School of Decorative Arts in Strasbourg, Fanette trained in studios under such masters of design as Pierre Di Sciullo and Pierre Bernard, providing invaluable grounding for her interest not only in typefaces but also in language and meaning.

Fanette’s works for publishing firms and organisations in the cultural and social domain are distinguished not only by her use of typography and distinctive colour combinations but also by her incorporation of intellectual context.

This is strikingly apparent in Fanette’s collaboration with the International Poster and Graphic Design Festival of Chaumont from 2007 to 2009, over which time she developed an acclaimed print project that linked graphic design with literature.

Teresa Sdralevich

Teresa Sdralevich is a free-lance poster designer and illustrator based in Brussels. She was born in Milan, Italy, in 1969. After graduating in Political Sciences at the University of Bologna in 1994, she took up illustration and graphic design classes at ENSAV La Cambre and ERG, both in Brussels.

In 1996, an internship within Jean-Christophe Geluck’s studio gave her an extraordinary opportunity to work on posters, cover design and illustration – the areas she’s still mostly interested in. She learned silkscreen printing with Jocelyne Coster and Jean-Pierre Muller before setting up her own printing space which she shares with other artists.

Teresa Sdralevich mainly addresses social, political and cultural topics; she creates posters as one-off pieces or as part of campaigns. She often creates images and slogans together for a maximum impact. Whenever she is in charge of more complex communication plans she musters the resources of other colleagues to cover all aspects of production.

In the last few years Sdralevich has led several workshops focused on the creation of posters, covers, magazines and other printed matters and on silkscreen printing. Sdralevich’s target audience is students, children, or the general public, according to the workshop project.http://www.teresasdralevich.net/
