Can anyone suggest good female type designers for union? Iam really struggling to find any...

What, are you running a political campaign? :-/

Assuming you actually have a good reason, I'd ask: what kind of work are you looking for?

Hmm. I assume you mean relatively unknown female type designers? You could call Zuzana Licko or Carol Twombly, but they may be busy. If I might ask: why are you actively searching for female type designers?

hehe...I know it seems strange, but we are now representing 20 designers, and I find it odd that they are all male.

I just wondered where all the young unknown female font designers are.

Maybe they have there own secret forum..hahaha

Hey Jim,

I could be interested, I'm really stuck with school for the next 3 weeks but then I'll be out and I'm really planning to get my typography skills polished when I have more time and try getting some stuff out there. I have some stuff started but I didn't dare putting anything on the chopping block so far =)

Three very talented type designers come immediately to mind: Freda Sack (The Foundry, UK), Shelley Winter (UK) and Jane Patterson (Design Lab, Italy). But I don't think any of them are likely to be looking for representation, either because they have their own sucessful companies or, in Shelley's case, focus on custom work not retail fonts.

Did you ever see Jill Bell's typefaces?
I recently wrote an article on her for the magazine Publish.
She is very productive and talented.
Agfa, ITC and Linotype did release her fonts.
