With World Design Day approaching, ico-D seeks to highlight and honour women designers around the globe with this year's theme: Women in Design. As a lead-up to the celebration, we've created a Women in Design resource: a selection of women websites, articles, and groups to help broaden your design network.

Issue 10 includes content from Educgraphic, Icograda's first meeting in North America, investigating design education and standardisation issues as well as how to create design teaching aids for youth. Symbol conventions to represent unemployed men and women during the Depression era seem controversial today, but offer intriguing visual imagery, situating this issue in time, as does an isotype chart of showing births and deaths in Vienna and an exploration of the history Bauhaus 56 years after its founding by Moholy-Nagy.
