Hall of Femmes

November 2, 2011

Hall of Femmes is an online project that highlights significant contributions to creative culture by female designers and art directors. It’s the brainchild of Swedish design partnership Hjärta Smärta who’ve published a series of books on four unsung heroines: Lillian Bassman, Carin Goldberg, Ruth Ansel and Paula Scher.

Thanks to Maria Popova at Brain Pickings for featuring their work.
