Hidden Women of Design seeks to raise the visibility of female Graphic Designers through workshops, talks and meet up events. 

The motivation behind setting up HWOD is to start a conversation about gender equality within the design industry. 

The aim of the events and talks is to platform female designers from varied areas of design from Service Design to Typography and different levels from Creative Directors to recent graduates.

"It can be exciting to discover hidden things – a nice little bar round the corner, a fiver between your receipts – but not when it’s the work of amazing female designers that changed the course of design history, that many of us haven’t heard of", Lorna, founder of hwod, Its Nice that-opinion piece
