WD+RU archive website

From the About page:

‘The Women’s Design + Research Unit (WD+RU) was founded in 1994 with the intent of raising awareness about women working in the field of visual communication and design education. WD+RU has never operated as a commercial studio but functions more as a collective, collaborating with students or design professionals who join the core team of Si├ón Cook and Teal Triggs in the realisation of self-initiated projects or responding to specific project invitations.

WD+RU’s focus has gradually changed more towards encompassing general social responsibility rather than just focusing on ‘women’s issues’, but all projects are underpinned by a core feminist philosophy and approach. WD+RU is an inclusive organisation interested in facilitating initiatives that give voices to communities that do not have a platform.’
