I did not know Ruth Ansel before hearing that she is coming to Stockholm to give a talk at Moderna Museet, but I understand that I probably should have. Ruth is a legendary art director from NY who has worked 50 years in the business for Harper’s Bazaar, The New York Times Magazine and Vanity Fair, and designed books for people like Annie Leibovitz and Richard Avedon. She has now been invited by Hall of Femmes(a nice blog on leading female graphic designers) to give a talk on her career, followed by a paneldiscussion on newspaperdesign. And yes, it´s in Stockholm, but might be worth the trip!
(Check out the Hall of Femmes series on the theme “If guys were typefaces“. Funny!)
