Interview Contributor / Editor; Designer; Design/Production Director / Sweden / Hall of Femmes

Samira Bouabana is a designer living in Stockholm. She was born in 1975 and studied art history and graphic design before founding the design studio Hjärta Smärta in 2001, together with Angela Tillman Sperandio. In 2009, they founded Hall of Femmes, a project that aims to highlight the work of women in art direction and design. The project has been snowballing ever since and has received global media attention including write-ups in the New York Times Magazine, Creative Review, and Vanity Fair. Hall of Femmes is the recipient of the 2013 Bengt Hanser award, presented by the Swedish Association of Communication Agencies, for its contribution to, in the words of the jury, “an improved industry for both men and women–and for giving us a more inclusive history of design.”
