Hey there, I'm Catherine.
I'm the designer behind Green Fingerprint, a creative studio and resource for folks who want to use bright, fresh design in meaningful ways. Here you'll find my no-fuss approach to creativity: simply designed projects, tutorials, and ideas that celebrate what matters most to you.
I fell in love with all things paper as a kid, and I've been designing custom stationery and wedding invitations since 2009.
When our first son was born five years ago, I began using what I knew about graphic design to work on some personal projects and this blog was born.
I've spent countless hours tinkering around on my laptop or scouring Pinterest for simple projects, favorite products, and design ideas. There's so much inspiration out there, but it can be really hard to know where to begin.
So I'm sharing my essential design toolkit with you: my favorite digital skills, creative projects, and simple ideas. For me, design goes beyond aesthetics; it's a vehicle I use to express love, appreciation, and joy.
Details matter, but simplicity rules.
I believe that simplicity leaves room for the important stuff to shine. Too much clutter - in design and in life - can obscure what matters most.
So we're going to keep things simple but beautiful, fun but meaningful. We're going to use design to celebrate the people we love in our homes, on paper, and in really thoughtful ways.
If this sounds good to you, then pull up a stool and stay awhile. I wish we could chat in my kitchen over chips and guac, but even if we can't hang out in person, I hope Green Fingerprint brightens your day and becomes your go-to resource for design that helps you celebrate what matters most to you.
Feel free to say hello. I'd love to hear from you!
