Cita Press: an open-access feminist digital library & studio2017 - PRESENT
Cita is an open-access feminist digital library and print-on-demand publisher that promotes and distributes the writings of women authors whose works are open-licensed or in the public domain. I founded Cita in 2017, while a Fulbright scholar pursuing my MFA in the University of Texas at Austin. Since then, I have led all the design, art direction, research, and UX/UI implementation.
All Cita publications can be accessed in low-connectivity areas. Cita’s interface design is WCAG 2.0 Level A compliant, using appropriate color contrast, keyboard-navigation friendly features, video captions, and descriptive alternative text for images. In 2019, AIGA’s Eye on Design called Cita “a genius platform” “dedicated to good design.” Cita is currently supported by a $750K grant by the Mellon Foundation, and sponsored by the wonderful Educopia Institute.
