4 Women Who Excel at Graphic Design
It is evident in the long history women have had in the arena of fashion design, home décor and more recently in the growing field of graphic design: women make excellent artists.
Today’s graphic designers have a wide range of tools available to create their art: from tablets and styluses, to programs that allow the artist to convert hand-drawn sketches into graphic files.
Monica Cardone, a well-known advocate for women’s equality in STEM, encourages this new creative endeavor. For a generation of girls raised on technology, the field of graphic design is a natural fit. Using their natural inclination to draw, doodle or illustrate, girls have been harnessing the power of technology to bring their designs to life in a big way.
Graphic designers are responsible for generating new fonts, impacting corporate branding, creating advertisements and developing new fabric patterns. Skilled designers integrate photography with text and images, creating beautiful, effective new designs. The results of their efforts inspire consumers to buy their products, linger over the pages of a magazine or scroll through a delightfully laid out website.
