Course: Be the Change
Professor: Rene Payne

“SMS Motherhood” is an initiative that educates on the history of motherhood through designed objects that show the evolution of design histories and societal norms, using Designing Motherhood by Michelle Millar Fisher and Amber Winick as a textbook. An open-type glyph set—with two fonts, one on Pregnancy and Birth and the other on Postpartum—shows the experiences of pregnancy, birth, and postpartum over the last 150 years and that although being born is a universal human experience, design is not.

Within this work, the audience comes to question a harmful history within industrial design towards mothers: who is and can be considered a mother, if a mother can only be a woman, how the roles of a mother can vary and change, and how to maintain an respect and awareness around reproduction.
