As part of my internship with Adaptive Path, I am writing an essay for the essay section of their website. I’m still formulating what it is I’m writing about, and a colleague recommended I look at design-emotion.com.
The first thing I noticed when viewing the site is a list photos, designers who have been interviewed about design and emotion. All of the designers are men.
Given generalizations of women being more emotional than men, I found this amusing.
Why are they all men? Is it a lack of women in design? A lack of women designers being appreciated? Men being more interested in emotional design than women? The site curator being male?
