Critical Mass: Women in Graphic Design
Saturn in Motion, Space Vacation, Yasmine Darwiche, Rana Zaher
Women Graphic Designers have played a vital role in Lebanese contemporary visual culture over the past three decades, yet few are known for their skills outside the commercial realm. Working mostly for clients, much of their artistic self-expression is lost. As an ode to these brilliant women,Beirut Design Week presents an exhibition of playful, cosmic and ethereal posters and products for sale by five young contemporary female designers: Samar Haddad (Space Vacation); Rana Zaher; Yasmine Darwiche; and Stephy Ibrahim (Saturn in Motion).
