Directory of Women Designers

Kia ora koutou katoa, welcome to the DIRECTORY OF WOMEN DESIGNERS, a project initiated by Designers Speak (Up). We aim to establish a contemporary, historic and perpetual index of Aotearoa New Zealand designers who identify as women, non-binary, of any gender experience, living and deceased, of all diversities — social, sexual, cultural, ethnic — anywhere in the world. 

Students, graduates, practitioners, teachers, educators, academics … fill out the form, and we will do the rest. If you know other designers who should be included, please share. Updates to the list are done manually every few days or so — please don’t be alarmed if it takes a few days for your name to appear. We’re open to ideas, offers of support, and are here to help — contact us, we’ll be in touch as soon as we can.

Mā whero, mā pango, ka oti ai te mahi / With red and black, the work will be complete.

— Alice Connew, Katie Kerr & Catherine Griffiths
