International Society of Typographic Designers


Throughout history, the role and recognition of women has been absent. However, by understanding that women were never written into history in the first place I have chosen my own female pioneer to celebrate her life in the form of an installation.

The purpose is to celebrate the life of my mother and to highlight the strong pattern of her being first for the duration of her BBC career. To reflect this approach, Personal is an installation with accompanying books and posters which include a system of typographic experiments and interpretations that inform the reader of my pioneers role.
