Women make great designers as they are naturally given a better sense of color and hues. This does not mean that men are any less in design, but women, whether they are professional designers or not, are expected to be more harmonized and sensible when it comes to design and décor.
We have previously published a few resource pages that focused on female designers from the U.S. who excelledinmultiple categories of design. Therefore, I find it safe to assume that the phenomenal skills and talent of women designers from the U.S. need no introduction to our regular readers. However, as Mother’s Day approaches(May 11th – the upcoming weekend) and many of these designers are dedicated mothers as well; I would like to honor their parenting role in the light of their profession. All these amazing personalities belong to various fields of design. Some of them are graphic designers; some create typography; others are skilled in print design; whereas, many of them are illustration artists. What makes them super special is the fact that they are all mothers. Our today’s post celebrates not only their expertise as professional designers but also their motherhood.
