VALUES

FEMINIST & PROUD
The goal of this collective is to challenge patriarchal ideals of productivity and efficiency. When we say “womxn started” we aim to create a space for us, as womxn designers to not only produce but to lead.  

TRANSPARENCY
Design is not separate from the designer. Our identities inform us as individuals and as a group. We will always question whose perspective we are taking. Our focus is on sharing what we know and being real about what we don’t.

CENTERING ON SUPPORT
Our aim is to create a supportive foundation for each other. This encouraging environment makes room for inspiring and creative work. We challenge to notion of the lone designer.
HAVING FUN!
We are also designers who wanna make stuff that’s cool and nice and have fun doing it!
