The 'Femme Type' issue of Typeone Magazine champions the design industry's under-represented creatives. As Amber Weaver writes in her editorial, since the publication of the first Femme Type publication in 2019 the design pool has been diluted to be a more inclusive one, but there is a lot of important work to do.
Inside you'll find articles exploring African writing systems, presenting ways to foster a more diverse type and graphic design scene, promoting inclusivity and unique font development, and questioning the accessibility, awareness and affordability issue facing people trying to enter the industry.
You'll also find interviews with multi-disciplinary type designer Ksenya Samarskaya, co-founder of independent type foundry Zetafonts Debora Manetti, and World of Women co-founder Yam Karkai who talks about the world of cryptocurrencies, the blockchain and NFTs.

As editor Amber Weaver says in the first editorial - this is a historical artefact of our design culture, not just a magazine.
