Build Your Brand TBA Build Your Brand

As designers, we are hired to think about everyone else and their great ideas. But it is important that we spend the same, if not more, amount of energy building our own brands and ideas.

Jessica Walsh noticed that she is one of very few women creative directors. She believes that we can change that through mentorship and championing others' work. Here are some things that inspired her, if you want to learn more:

Ad Age: What We Can Do About the Dearth of Female Creatives?
Fast co: Where are all the women Creative Directors?
Smashing Magazine: Gender Disparities in the Design Field

Numbers show that there's a very small percentage of women leading the creative industry. However, many of us find ourselves most inspired by other talented ladies. Here are a few women we admire for their endless talent and grit!
