About

Introduction

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 specialise in designing brand identities for creative entrepreneurs. If you are in need of a brand new look for your small creative business, get in touch!
