18th Annual Designing Women Celebration

18th Annual Designing Women edition of DTG Magazine Each year we take great relish and pleasure in discovering creative spirits in celebration of Women's History Month. This year, our 18th, the social networking scene has taken over, and now, we've been discovered because it would appear that everyone and their brother has a "Designing Women" edition. But we've found a few fabulous women designers through Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Flickr and other social networking channels that we feel deserve to be celebrated!

Ladies and gentlemen, the 18th Annual Designing Women edition kicks off with :
* Original screen prints of the Chicago Women’s Graphics Collective posters
* The Role of Women in Design | 12 Designers – 12 Opinions
* Louise Ormerod : Gender Disparities in Graphic Design
* Interviewing Women in Web Design Around the World
