Pretty in Powersuits is a 48pg book explaining the condition of today's professional leadership environment and its need for more women in it. Using statistics, peer-reviewed articles, and my own sense of things, I wrote and designed this book to answer the burning question in myself - "Where will my career take me?". Inspired by the females of the 1940, the retro design and illustrations harken back to an amazing point in time when women took control of the workforce and of themselves. This book was awarded the Senior Writing Award for 2011, one of two awards given within Mason's School of Art.
