The name “Typewrite” was inspired by customised stationery that is designed using hand illustration in a digital age. Typewrite stands for “pausing for thought to put pen to paper” and the uniqueness, creativity and thoughtfulness that come with handwritten notes!
They say motherhood brings out your creativity – and that’s exactly how Typewrite began. I’m married to a surgeon in training, and have 2 little girls so Typewrite was a design hobby turned into a home business. A few years ago, a gift idea for friends (personalised notecards with illustrations of their favourite things) became the first sets of many more. I guess it was fitting because I’ve always remained loyal to my good old fashioned planner, often smile stupidly over lovely paper, and put a lot of emphasis on the little details!
