Openquote Designs focuses on helping you live life inspired so that each day is a step closer to achieving your dreams.

The planners are designed to suit your needs, and there is plenty of space to dedicate to what matters most to you, or decorate the timeless pages to your heart's content.

Many of the designs have variations so that you can choose what is best for you, and even choose a different layout for each day. There is, after all, nothing ordinary and routine in chasing your dreams, so you deserve a versatile planner that adapts to your changing needs.

Commitment to sustainability

All designs have been created with sustainability in mind. The lines are clean and just heavy enough to provide a guide for you without getting in the way of your planning and creativity, or using too much ink. On the blog, you will find guides on how to print the most number of inserts on a single sheet of paper to maximise paper. Inserts are made as flexible as possible so that you only have to print what you want - oh, the beauty of printable planners!


This shop was born in the summer of 2012 out of a desire to create. Realising, as a young business, that I wanted to help others through that process, I focused on providing fun, yet professional, designs to help expand small businesses. What I love most about this is knowing that my designs are helping people connect. It's a pretty wonderful feeling.

My aspirations for Openquote Designs was then put on hold for a little while until early 2015, when I discovered the planning world, which just felt right, both personally and for Openquote Designs. It combines my desire to stay organised and on top of my game with my love for good design and helping others achieve their goals. Nothing puts a smile on my face like knowing that the designs I have created and put effort into have made you happy.

About me

Iā€™m Alicia, a child of God living each day by His grace. I am reading Law in the University of Cambridge, and enjoying every moment of it, including the ups and downs. The reading lists keep growing, and essays keep coming. Having lots of exciting new projects for Openquote Designs give me motivation to wake up on cold winter mornings and sleepy spring sunrises.

My personal-sized planner and iPhone to keep on top of my schedule and ensure I don't go into the wrong lecture hall (though this has happened before...) and I have a lovely black Moleskin journal with unlined pages to keep track of my Cambridge adventures and all of my biggest and wildest dreams.

My life has been filled with many ups and downs, and they have all contributed to who I am today. I know the importance of living life to the fullest, and as I chase my own dreams, my greatest joy is in helping others follow their own paths. The road may not be smooth, but we will get there together.
