While the creative industry is making moves towards gender equality, women remain fairly invisible in modern design history. Articles, books and documentaries about iconic creatives of the past generally focus overwhelmingly on men. But it's not like there aren't great female creatives to talk about too!
Maja Radosavljević is a creative strategist at The Frameworks.She joined the team on the day that lockdown began in 2020 and brought with her a fresh perspective to the London design studio. Armed with a degree in EnglishLiterature from Warwick University and a brain that taps into both left and right hemispheres, she's passionate about joining the dots between strategy and design to create more meaningful experiences. Since becoming a"Frameworker", she has been instrumental in shaping the studio's strategic direction in areas as diverse as contact centre software, reinsurance and digital transformation services.
Although Maja draws inspiration from many women, from Elif Shafak and AOC through to Ellen Ripley, someone she keeps coming back to is Georgia O'Keeffe. "The more I learn, the more amazed I am," she says. "Georgia was quite simply, the coolest. An independent spirit and a bold innovator. A fearless trailblazer. A visionary.Who else would have ventured out into the desert alone in a customised Model-A Ford cum mobile studio? Let alone a woman – in the 1930s – who had only just learned to drive. Always confident and comfortable in her own company, her style – in both fashion and interiors – is still considered chic today. She may have died nearly 40 years ago, but her legacy is still alive. And I am here for it."
