Hello, I’m Hannah Catchlove, illustrator and founder of Fond Company.
Fond Company’s story began back in 2015 when I moved to Suffolk and left my full time job. Eager to live a more creative lifestyle, I started freelancing as a graphic designer whilst illustrating and selling punny animal cards on the side. Some of these designs are now some of my bestselling cards!
Much to my delight, people loved my illustrations and I began to develop my product range of playful and stylish, animal-themed illustrations. To date this includes greeting cards, art prints, tea towels, tote bags & coasters, with plans to expand this even more.
I moved back to Kent in 2016 and am proud to be a Kent-based business. I've now got a lovely studio at my home in Canterbury, which has allowed me to concentrate further on developing Fond Company's product range.
In 2017, I was approached by a shop in Kent to stock my cards and since then I’ve been expanding my stockists and welcome wholesale orders. If you are a retailer interested in stocking my products please visit my wholesale page for more information.
In 2018 I introduced dog breed coasters and a range of dog breed prints, to compliment my bestselling doggy bags & tea towels which sold out over Christmas. In 2019 I launched my incredibly popular cat range, along with individual dog breed bags and coasters.
Everything I make starts life in my studio in Canterbury and is lovingly hand-crafted, we partner only with manufacturers in Britain ensuring our products are sustainably and ethically produced, to the high quality we’ve become known for.
I'm incredibly proud to announce that I am a Finalist at the Kent Women In Business Awards 2020 in two categories:
- Young Business Woman of the Year
- Retail Business of the Year
