  • Women dominating the design industry?

    When I went to Uni 2 years ago, 90% of the lecturers were male while only about 30% of the students were male.

    Will the future of design be dominated by women?

      What do you mean, "will it"? The field has been dominated by women for a long time!

      PS, the male dominated designer education field and female dominated professional industry is another reality in design.

          Except that's not what you come away with reading design magazines and such. Most of the highlighted designers are men, at least in my recollection.

            Many of the older, established designers are men. But when you actually go to work in the field, you find most of the working professionals are women.

                            To get serious about your thread, though Buda, I suspect that the field has been dominated by women, and yet the big names are all men. Not because men are better, but because that's the way our society accords recognition, to men, instead of women. It's considered an exception when a woman succeeds, not a matter of course that she will.

                            I suspect that there are a lot of great women designers out there who have had no recognition whatsoever, who've probably been in the trenches doing their thing, but it's the Sagmeisters who get the props, not others. I couldn't really tell you of any good women designers out there, but I'm quite sure that they're there.

                                I was wondering how many of you use SASS and how you went about learning it. I finished going to school for web development and have a great understanding of css, but didn't learn anything about pre-processors...

                                Coupled with a 4-year degree in design, yeah, it could be a definite plus. As a person who actually does make hiring decisions, lots of recent design graduates gloss over the fact that graphic design...
