afFEMation — influential women in Australian design history
afFEMation is a website and project “making heroes of women in Australian graphic design”
In 2016 Jane Connor sent an online survey out to stakeholders in the graphic design industry in Australia, asking them to list women who had made a significant contribution to graphic design in Australia since 1960. 142 names were listed and the top 25 most mentioned women were approached to take part in this project.
The afFEMation project stems from her belief that designers included in the history of Australian graphic design should be measured by their local influence rather than by their connections abroad, Connor writes in a post on Eye Magzine's blog.
