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 the illustrations and my products and I’ve been continuing to develop my product range of playful and stylish, animal-themed illustrations.
We moved back to Kent in 2016 and are proud to be a Kent-based business. I've now got a lovely studio which has allowed me to concentrate further on developing Fond Company's product range.
This year I’ve introduced dog breed coasters and a range of dog breed prints, to compliment my bestselling doggy bags & tea towels which sold out over Christmas. Later this year, cats will be coming! Along with individual dog breed bags which I’m really excited about.
In 2017, I was approached by a shop in Kent to stock my cards and since then I’ve been expanding my stockists. 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.
