If you love planners, memory keeping, journaling, party planning, personalized guests books, paper craft hobbies or just the old fashion joy of writing notes on paper…I’m so glad you’ve stopped by!

Catherine Design Co. started from a love of paper, a desire to plan life better and need to get organized.


My name is Catherine – a designer, stationery-lover and mother of two.

After graduating with a degree in Information Technology, I worked as a Web Designer for leading media and digital agencies in South Africa, London and Sydney. After many years of refining my skills in Online Media, I was promoted to Head of Online for a leading magazine publisher. I loved my work but it was stressful and difficult to balance with family life, so I setup my own design studio.

I always had an interest in character animation and digital illustration, so I completed various art courses at the University of South Africa, Putney School of Arts and London Escape Studios. This lead to creating a collection of invitations, nursery decor and printed stationery.

I hope you enjoy your visit and feel welcome to get in touch, I love hearing from you!





Catherine also curates Mum Home & Baby, a much-loved destination for inspiration on nursery decor, creative play spaces and innovative baby products.

The next year will see some very exciting developments come to life, so stay updated by joining my social network on Facebook or Instagram
