A series of work by designers and artists featured in Ruth Sykes’ groundbreaking exhibition ‘A+: 100 years of graphic communication by women at Central Saint Martins‘ has been generously donated to the College’s Museum and Study Collection. 

Featuring notable work by alumni Kath Tudball, BA Graphic Design Lecturer, Cath Caldwell and Debbie Cook, the collection includes textiles, posters, books and magazines, representing the myriad ways women have contributed to the field of graphic design.

Continuing the legacy of the exhibition, which took place earlier this year, the works will sit alongside the collection’s existing body of work by women and aid learning and teaching about the history of graphic design.

In addition to the donations, Ruth’s extensive research in the subject unearthed new information about overlooked designers, and as a result added greatly to the museum’s designers’ biographies.

“The Museum team would like to say a huge thank you to Ruth and all the designers who have donated work. We are thrilled with her research and dynamism and are very happy to receive the collection.” – Museum and Study Collection

The full collection will be available on the CSM Museum and Study Collection’s online catalogue and can be viewed in person by contacting the collection.
