About Us

Through MomDesigner100 program, GMI links like-minded and socially conscious women designers from various professional settings and cultural backgrounds. To further leverage their professional capacity and innovative minds, GMI has established the Design Innovation Center, which is gradually evolving into a
Women Design Academy.


Meanwhile, GMI is also trying to accumulate funding to set up a MomDesigner Fund, to support MomDesigners at early career stage to learn and study abroad or internationally to sharpen their design skills and broaden their art vision.

The Design Center directly provides various design services across fields including visual, graphic, architecture, interior, art exhibition, fashion design, and more.

We have also developed our first series of general design education courses and
WomenINdesign Talks targeting early-stage women and mom designers from different disciplines. We aim to offer further design education courses, workshops and customized education programs.


What does design mean to us?


Design is the first human behavior.


Everyone can design; our every day life and every action is a design activity. GMI advocates and practices cross-disciplinary and collaborative design work integrating sustainable and gender inclusive design principles, in particular design-driven solutions for the real world, social problems.
