Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie is one of the 13 women celebrated by Google for this year’s International Women’s Day celebration.
Google showcased inspirational quotes across various languages by thirteen international female trailblazers—both past and present and Chimamanda’s quote was featured.
“I matter. I matter equally. Not ‘if only’, not ‘as long as’. I matter. Full Stop.” Chimamanda’s quote reads.
Connecting to the larger theme of “women empowering women,” the quotes were also designed by a talented group of female guest artists from around the globe.
Chimamanda’s quote was designed by Zuzanna Rogatty, a Polish graphic designer based in New York City, USA. According to her, the visual concept for the quote design was inspired through expressive and rhythmic lettering.
“I tried to illustrate the energy and power coming from the quote. I especially highlighted the word ‘equally’ and the last ‘I matter”, which I felt should sound the loudest,” she said.
