B1 Creative is a female-lead small business and, like all the others out there, I’m sure, we know that the world we live and work in is a much better, equal place thanks to the courageous women who paved the way before us.

If you’ve visited us in Streatham you’ll know that we have a section of the studio dedicated to them: The Wall of Wonderful Women. There isn’t a wall big enough to house all the influential woman of the past (and present) but having some of their faces on the wall looking down empowers and encourages us to get through the working day. We’ve also been sharing their quotes and achievements on our Instagram feed using the hashtag #wonderfulwomen.
