Nov 1 Let's Celebrate!

November marks the end of our LWD exhibition in The Lighthouse so we’d love for you all to come along and celebrate everyone who has been involved in the 2 month long exhibition, talks and workshops.

It’s also a milestone for the LWD Glasgow team. After setting up the chapter 2 1/2 years ago we will be handing over to a brand new group of hosts who will no doubt take LWD even further to help the female creative community in the city. Let's give them a proper welcome!

Many woman study graphic design yet a much smaller group go on to become working designers and an even smaller number become industry leaders. Our aim is to help build a strong community of female designers through mentoring, collaboration and support to encourage a change in the Glasgow design scene. Here are a few links about why we think this is important.

Where are the women in type design?

Numbers show that there's a very small percentage of women leading the creative industry. However, we find the people we're inspired by most are often other talented ladies. Here are a few women we have admired, worked with, or had our eye on! Email us if you want to nominate someone for this list.
