While the field of graphic design has certainly seen an increase in women, sadly the world of typography is still dominated by men. But we aim to challenge that through celebrating the work of women typographers worldwide. With the help of the global Typism Community, women typographers worldwide have been submitting their IWD theme creations. Read more about it right here.
