March on: Designing Women

March is probably one of my favorite months simply because it usually marks the end of winter and begins to see the beginnings of spring. I know that summer isn't too far away! I also love preparing for March, because 18 years ago we decided to begin featuring women in the design, graphics, illustration, photography and other visual arts fields as an adjunct celebration to Women's History Month.
