»notamuse«– iphiGenia »Volition« winners interview

Der international Gender Design Award iphiGenia »Volition« geht an »notamuse«: Das Online-Projekt stellt Grafikdesignerinnen in den Mittelpunkt der Aufmerksamkeit um sie in der Designöffentlichkeit sichtbar zu machen. Wir wollten mehr über die Arbeit und die Ideen zum Gender und Design unserer jungen iphiGenia »Volition« Gewinnerinnen wissen. Hier unsere Fragen: 1. Wie haben Sie Drei sich a. zusammengefunden, um b. genau dieses Thema zu bearbeiten? Wir haben uns während eines Design-Masters an der HAW Hamburg kennengelernt. Das Thema »Frauen im Grafikdesign« hat uns alle drei – aufgrund sehr unterschiedlicher Motivationen – schon lange beschäftigt. Zu wenige weibliche Vorbilder im Grafikdesign, eine lückenhafte Design-Geschichtsschreibung, unausgewogene Sprecher_innenzahlen auf Konferenzen oder sexistische Erfahrungen im Arbeitskontext sind nur ein paar Punkte, die in diesem Zusammenhang genannt werden können. Auf der Suche nach einem Masterthema beschlossen wir dann, die Thematik anzugehen und ein Projekt zu starten, das langfristig ein Bewusstsein schafft.

They are interested in stories that never get told: educational, emotional and inspirational. The US-American publication will be awarded with the second international Gender Design Award iphiGenia »Revolution« We are keen on learning more about our iphiGenia-winners work and their idea about gender design. Here are our questions to Saskia Ketz, editor-in-chief: How did you get the idea for A Women’s Thing, and how did it start? I was working at a tech startup here in New York and we had many male employees, which sometimes brought in an unbalanced dynamic for the women on the team. Company culture, of course, reflects the socialization of its employees. After reading Sandberg’s “Lean In”, I wanted to create a women’s group within the company, mainly to discuss our thoughts on how we could have a stronger voice when it came to hiring decisions. We interviewed Roseanne Haggerty, who has been a pioneer of homelessness efforts in the city …
