The Best Thing I’ve Seen Today: “Badass Lady Creatives” and DWL Textile Designers

by rferron

The idea is simple: creative communities benefit from diversity, but there is a notable lack of women (for starters) featured on speaker panels, in leadership positions, and even in our daily blog feeds. Badass Lady Creatives features talented female professionals who deserve to be recognized for their work, because good things come from getting the work out there.

It’s a joyously wonderful site to spend an afternoon exploring.  I happened upon it through a DesignWorkLife post featuring 5 textile designers. (Bonus- I’ve included some highlights from that article, too!)

“Helen Dealtry is Woking Girl Designs, a Brooklyn-based textile design studio; she partners with clients and sells her own line of products. Helen lends notable warmth to geometric designs, but her more classically “feminine” work (florals) has a bold charm to it, as well.” (via DWL)

Laura Slater prints her designs by hand. Her work is refreshing because it does not rely on pattern for impact, but rather demonstrates an experimental approach. Laura’s process page is a real treat. (via DWL)

Miki Fukuyama is the powerhouse behind Makumo textiles; her online shop features a full bounty of products in her graphic, illustrative style. This Fukuoka, Japan-based designer screenprints her textiles by hand, a process which reveals itself in her layered aesthetic. (via DWL)

Mónica Muñoz is the Spanish designer behind the Moniquilla brand; her patterns appear on garments, accessories, stationery, and house wares (shop here). Mónica experiments with a range of styles, but her floaty watercolors are among her best work. (via DWL)
