definition of clementine


Hi, my name is Carmia Cronjé and I am the founder of Clementine Creative. I have a passion for graphic design, paper, pretty colours and patterns. That’s why Clementine Creative was born!

My printable stationery business was launched in 2011, but I’ve been a freelance graphic designer since 2008. I help small businesses and individuals with their logos, stationery and websites. I especially love working with female entrepreneurs.

About me

My name, Carmia, seems to be of either English, Hebrew or Latin origin. It either means song, garden or orchard. My surname, Cronjé (pronounced krohn-year) is of French origin and the original French spelling was Cronier.

  • I love design, crafts, DIY, technology and computers (nerdy, I know).
  • I am a Christian.
  • My first language is Afrikaans.
  • I can keep myself busy for hours just by thinking (and not talking at all).
  • Both my parents are teachers. My dad is also a cartoonist and artist.
  • I’m sensitive, shy and emotional, but sometimes theatrical.

I live in the beautiful Helderberg region of South Africa. When I am not designing you can also find me reading, surfing the web, walking, and spending time with my boyfriend of six years.
