Collection: Designed by Women

Women have designed posters for as long as the art form has existed. Their contributions to the field, often overlooked, deserve our full attention.

  • In the field of poster design (and design as a whole) women have rarely been granted the same recognition as their male counterparts.

    Even today, when more women than men are entering the graphic design field, there are few well-known female poster designers.

    And yet, even this small selection of posters shows the range of female talent in the field.

  • Recently, some powerful voices have brought attention to the contributions of women to poster design. 

    Berlin-based graphic designer Svenja Prigge has created a project called Posterwomxn, an online community working to promote the work of women poster designers.

    Design museums have also taken up the cause, and over the last several years a number of exhibitions have focused on posters designed by women. In 2019, The London Transport Museum’s exhibition Poster Girls showcased posters designed by women for the London Underground, and the new Poster House museum in New York organized an exhibition of posters from the 2017 Women’s March.

    These are important first steps toward a full recognition of women in the poster world.
