Aesop – iphiGenia »Evolution« winners interview

Aesop – the Australian company creates skin, hair and body care products. They are an exceptional example of a company bringing together gender, culture and social commitment in an outstanding overall design approach that is both respectful and sensitive. We are keen on learning more about our iphiGenia-winners work and their idea about gender design. Here are our questions: The design and the architecture of each shop is different, albeit clearly recognizable. What’s the story behind this concept? Our stores and counters are the embodiment of our philosophy and our approach to retail service. While two Aesop spaces are never the same, when a customer enters any door around the world, they encounter the familiar: the products on our shelves, the knowledge, gracious hospitality and service extended by our consultants, and an aesthetic anchored not only to our sensibility but also to local culture, traditions and materials. Architecturally, our design method is to work with what is already there, weaving ourselves into the core and fabric of the street rather than imposing ourselves upon a …

»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. Dabei geht der angelegte Rahmen weit über eine Masterarbeit hinaus und wir arbeiten noch lange nach dem Abschluss an dem Projekt. 2. notamuse: da stecken sowohl die Muse als auch …

»A Women’s Thing» – iphiGenia »Revolution» winners interview

»A Women’s Thing« is a print and digital publication dedicated to reshaping society’s ideas of what “women’s things” are. 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 …

iphiGenia winner MINDSHARE – image

Interview with iphiGenia-winner MINDSHARE, Copenhagen

The Danish agency MINDSHARE will be awarded with the first international Gender Design Award iphiGenia »Revolution«.   We would love to learn more about our iphiGenia-nominees project and their idea about gender design. Here are our questions: How did you get the idea for Image Hack? The idea came to life by continuously experiencing the difficulty in finding pictures in various image banks that actually portrayed women as strong, independent and equal to men. If we don’t provide the advertising industry with non-stereotypical images of women it’s going to be very hard to change the media land scape and this is why we started working on the idea, that ended with Image_Hack. You talk about »legal hacking«? What is legal hacking? We used the stock sites’ own algorithms to “hack” the site. By tagging our pictures with words as beautiful and strong, we were able to “hack” the site to show pictures of strong and independent women in non-stereotypical roles, when people search for beautiful women on a stock site. What does the term »beautiful …
