Women In Lighting is an inspirational digital platform that profiles women working in the field of lighting design. It aims to promote their passion and achievements, narrate their career path and goals, celebrate their work and therefore help elevate their profile in the lighting community.
The T-shirt was originally designed to be a basic undergarment, but over the years, the world’s most ubiquitous fashion item has become a powerful political weapon. T-shirts are a great barometer of social change. They can shock, outrage, unite and challenge the status quo. They can also help to disseminate messages around the world.
The WIL community were challenged to express their creativity and create a special WIL T-shirt that shared the values of the community. Using the themes of equality, empowerment, inspiration and light, people were asked to submit a design for this competition. Over 200 entries were received and can be seen on the website – there is a truly international spread with designs from thirty seven countries and a mixture of hand and digitally drawn images and graphic messages.
