Meet the Trailblazer


Cipe Pineles’s art directing paved the way for other female designers. Somebody had to be first, and for women in design, Pineles was a trailblazer as the first female design member of the Art Directors Club in New York, the first independent female art director at a magazine and more. From Glamour to Vogue, Seventeen to Mademoiselle, Pineles’ playfully modernist style helped her overcome sexism in art design and achieve success.
