Event description

Description

Last season AIGA Boston and Boston University College of Fine Arts introduced HERSTORY, a new lecture series celebrating and fostering women’s achievements in design. HERSTORY is part of AIGA’s Women Lead Initiative (WLI) whose mission is to empower women in design and advance the vital discourse on issues facing professional women today. WLI aims to address persistent biases and inequities inclusively and constructively through programming around three goals: Celebrate the achievements of women in design, Cultivate awareness of gender-related issues, while building knowledge and leadership skills, and Connect by facilitating relationships within and beyond the design industry.

Join us at HERSTORY with 2012 BU alum, Amber Vittoria, designer, illustrator, and One Club Young Gun winner. Amber aims to break the 'ideal physical female' in her work, which she describes as ‘Contemporary and heavily inspired by modern events and perspectives on women, her pieces focus on femininity and the female form, leveraging physical traits such as body hair, overtly extended limbs and rounded features. Over the past few years, Amber traded meticulous attention to detail for more natural, noisy and honest linework, believing the forms more aptly portray woman through a woman’s lens.

Amber is a One Club Young Gun, American Illustration Chosen Winner, and ADC Annual Award Winner. Her work has been recognized by Print Magazine‘s 2017 New Visual Artists – 15 Under 30, It’s Nice That, Computer Arts, HuffPost, Teen Vogue, and Man Repeller.
