UnBeige Looks Back: The Year In Those People Who Aren’t Men

98039 Contemp WOMEN SYMBOL SIGN 3x9.jpg

We closed last year out with the bonus question asked at the now-famous panel on book design at the 92nd Street Y: What about that glass “cieling” in design?

This year it seems we were able to discuss the issue in a much more civil manner. Nicolai Ouroussoff had his theories about why it’s not happening for female architects, Zeldman covered women in the web design world, yet, on the other hand, we wondered why the entire craft industry seems to be populated exclusively by ladies.

Then all of a sudden–and completely by accident, they insist–mediabistro.com put together a panel on the future of design that featured five speakers, all women. Was it really that hard, then?

UnBeige is counting down our biggest stories of 2007, all day, right here.
