Inspired by Enid Marx’s designs for Royal Mail stamps, Albino’s work celebrates the prominent female designers featured in our ‘Poster Girls’ exhibition. The designer’s own blurred portrait is an acknowledgment of how difficult it was to find photographs of these women.

Created in response to Enid Marx’s pattern papers, and all the women whose work from the museum is included in this show.
I was first drawn to Enid Marx due to her industrial textile designs for London Underground. What I discovered was a multifaceted designer, who dealt not only with textile and paper, but wrote, designed and illustrated children’s books, and curated a vast collection of popular art in partnership with Margaret Lambert.

The work has been chosen to be part of The CSM Museum & Study Collection permanent archive and is currently exhibited in the London Transport Museum as part of the Poster Girls Parade Exploring Equality, on until October 2018.

Postage Girls

She is, for me, the representation of what we call today design, able to tackle a diverse range of projects with a variety of mediums and deal with the complexity that derives from this.
I chose to work on this aspect of Enid Marx, by re-designing stamps inspired by her own Royal Mail stamp designs, but printing them on textile. I have made a stamp for each one of the women whose work from the museum is included in this exhibition.

Since any inequality starts from a lacking or wrong representation of certain issues (in this case women as graphic designers throughout the official design history), my project aims to focus on the difficulty of having visual documents of the women that were celebrated in this window exhibition of ‘I don’t know her name, but I know her work’. The level of each woman’s image distortion is based on the difficulty I had on finding pictures of them online and offline.

Furthermore, inspired by Enid Marx’s pattern papers, I made patterns to represent each designer with reference to their own graphic style.
