While many look to Women’s History Month to recognize the immense contributions of past women designers, we’d like to also look to those of the present. It’s a chance to spotlight the invigorating women designers who bring boundless inspiration to our lives and continue to push the possibilities of design today and tomorrow. As a design firm founded by a woman of color, we are proud to be led and surrounded by several fierce designers and creative minds. We’re also lucky to be moved by the groundbreaking women across our industry. Which is why we’d like to thank just a few women designers who have set the bar high, delivering a new level or artistry to this craft while simultaneously running fruitful businesses. They each are an inspiration.
