If you are a woman website designer/developer, this is your home for web design information, networking, services, camaraderie, and fun.
We are a mailing list of women web designers. A very high energy mailing list of women web designers. Learning, networking, trying out things, ranting about things, but having a good time sharing what we do for a living. We all own our own web design business. We are women entrepreneurs. Professional, experienced, web designers. If you fit that description, then you should join us. In our website pages, we have links to resources for web design and small business. There are also articles on various web design subjects such as search engine optimization, copy-writing for web sites, marketing, and many other web design related subjects. Our designer directory features our members and their design specialties.
Women Designers Group was started by Susan Sheehan in April 1999 as a resource for women web designers and developers. The group originally consisted of about 25 women, specifically invited to join because each one was an expert in some aspect of design, that when pooled together provided a core of knowledge for the group to grow. We have grown to a group of over 250 women (at one time we were over 860!) from every corner of the globe, but we all have one thing in common… the desire to continue to learn and the willingness to share our knowledge with others. We have narrowed our focus to just women in business, owning a company that does web design or development, but members wear many hats. In July 2003, the list was handed over to a long-time member, Donna Donohue of KidoImages Website Development. “DJ” as she is known to the list has been learning and contributing to the list since June of 1999. She vowed to keep the list going for the women involved and for future entrepreneurs who need some support.
