Women make excellent designers, there's no question about that. They're fantastic communicators and multi-taskers. A female friend of mine describes women as 'web-thinkers', saying: "Women tend to collect more pieces of data when they think, put them into more complex patterns, identify more options and outcomes." These are all skills that undeniably make for a good problem-solving designer.
Today in South Africa, almost half of all design graduates are female, and the opportunity to combine the many different characteristics of female and male minds sometimes results in dream collaborations. Take women to be part of your creative team and an award-winning team will be born.
