Not another faceless online community

A SPACE TO FEEL CONNECTED, IN A WORLD THAT'S PRETTY DISCONNECTED RIGHT NOW

We're a global community of creatives who understand the effects of isolation and the power of relationships.

We exist to help you connect with industry experts, as well as inexperienced creatives who all share a goal of making creative expression a lifestyle, not just a career. This is a space to be yourself, receive support and give back without expectation, making the creators journey feel warm and fuzzy instead of lonely and terrifying.

“Framework is more like a family than an online community…

Minus the creepy uncles and tiger mums. 0% bullshit, 100% vibe, 10% maths equations."
