Where are the women in the world of typography?
Here, together, we can gather the many skilled female type designers and their designs. Typequality is the subject of Kimberly Ihres graduation project for Beckmans College of Design. The project consist of this website and a typeface of Kimberlys own design, Typequality font.
Thank you Sanna Frese for programming this site.
Role models are very important if young women are to dare to enter the world of typography. That’s why Typequality needs you – and everyone else who wants to contribute to a more balanced typographic room. Discover, share and use!
Typequality is a tool to recognize and get the word out about female typographers and their typefaces. Upload a typeface using the “Share” function. In the “Find” section, there are typefaces designed by women. Click on each typeface to get more information and purchase or download it.
