Despite increases in the number of women-owned businesses in Austin, female and nonbinary entrepreneurs still face many barriers. They often lack the networks, community, funding, and visibility to grow in size and sales, and as a result have difficulty reaching the consumers who would be most inclined to support them. SheWork is a series of zines that aims to archive and highlight WOBs in the Austin community in hopes of bringing more customers to the stores.


SheWork Zine is created by Maya Coplin for the “Thanks for Understanding” exhbition at UT Austin.

The project was created as my senior capstone project. Through this project, I explored my interested in entreprenurship and small scale publication design.

Special thanks to everyone who was interviewed as well as Jane Claire Hervey for all her support during this project.
