Texture Design Co. is a Charleston, SC based stationery design studio established by Emily Kirby. Our mission is to create products that help people live joyfully and love others. Our desire is to provide high-quality designs, while also striving for excellent client relationships.
The name Texture comes from the elements of design. Be it a greeting card, a piece of furniture, or an old photograph, the things we treasure have a particular texture that gives us a feeling or brings back a memory. At Texture Design Co., our hope is that our designs will do just that!

I have always been creative-minded, and I think that creativity was instilled in me by my grandmothers! Even from a young age, I can vividly remember painting with one grandmother and learning to sew purses from the other. Later in life, those experiences inspired a love for decorating, which led me to pursue a degree in interior design at the University of Georgia (Go Dawgs!). My studies in the field landed me a job on King Street in downtown Charleston, South Carolina, and I quickly fell in love not only with the city, but the textures, patterns, and color selection associated with my work.
A few years later, I decided to take my passions in a new direction and study graphic design. That decision lead to a whole new world of creative possibilities, and it was amazing! I was fascinated by how the basic principles of interior design (balance, proportion, color theory, and symmetry) were mirrored in graphic design – the foundation was still there, just in a new medium. After completing my graphic design degree, I took a huge leap and opened my own shop, Texture Design Co.
It has been so exciting for my husband and I to watch Texture grow, and we’re eager to see what the future holds! In all that we do, we hope to bring glory to God as we serve our customers and strive to be good stewards of the talents, relationships and resources that He provides us with. Thank you again for visiting our website, and please don’t hesitate to contact us with any questions – we would love to hear from you!
