Oxford Women in Computer Science

I collaborated with Oxford Women in Computer Science (OxWoCS) on a mini Instagram interview series to champion notable women in Computer Science at Oxford. The series offers a peek into the lives of women computer scientists at Oxford, each interview ending on an uplifting note, with advice and encouragement for the next generation of women looking to enter the field. This was an especially meaningful project as inclusivity and gender equality are issues close to my heart. Being able to collaborate with and support friends, my alma mater, and women in science (as well as design — more details below) made this personal project all the more special.

I wanted to use this project as an opportunity to support women in design as well as science.
I intentionally sought out typefaces that would suit a science and technology project that were designed by women, and chose Lining by London-based design studio A Practice for Everyday Life, run by Kristy Carter and Emma Thomas.
Lining brought an additional layer of meaning to the series, as we were able to support women in both science and visual design.
