Fully Justified – Uncovering the truth behind the underrepresentation of women in Senior design roles.
As Falmouth Graphic Design undergraduates, we are approaching the industry with curiosity and intrigue regarding the underrepresentation of female designers in Senior roles. We are concluding our research based on a series of interviews spanning a decade worth of female Falmouth graduates and their experiences within the industry. Discussing our findings from our recent publication, we will be considering how we can make the industry more mindful about how it can progress in light of gender based issues.
ICBQ – Unpublishable
ICBQ is a research publication focused on showcasing the work of design professionals and students which would usually go unseen. Anything from rejected design proposals to the process work that leads to a finished outcome.
The publishing of the work in ICBQ is important as so much of what we see of the design world is highly polished finished work, too often the presentation of design and the design process are a skin-deep experience rather than an in depth examination into the creative process.
We hope to open up the discussion around work which falls off the radar, we want to show its value and examine the relationship creatives have with rejection. We want to share their stories with the aim to remind students and professionals that although work may fall by the wayside, it doesn’t mean it’s not if any value.
