(ISTD) WRITING WOMEN INTO HISTORY
The 2018 ISTD brief was to typographically celebrate the life of a woman who has previously gone unrecognised for her role in the worlds of art, music, science, industry, technology, or any aspect of our culture that seems worthy of writing her back into history. For this brief I selected Phyllis Shillito who was a pioneer in Design Education and implented the first diploma of Design in Australia. My interpretation of this brief is to tell Phyllis’ story by making references typographically to her life’s legacy through form and materiality. Mapping interesting links and connections through the world of typography and quotes. Thread is used to create three- dimensional hyperlinks that guide the reader through the pages of the book.
