Katie Richardson is known for her resourcefulness and clean, minimal design. Her company Puj (pronounced like “pudge”) focuses on “simplifying parenthood” with easy-to-use products for parents. In a few short years, Puj has expanded to 20 countries. Her products have been featured in several major magazine publications like Parenting, Fit Pregnancy, Pregnancy & Newborn and the Daily Candy. Her innovative, fold-able infant bathtub, the Puj Tub, was awarded by Pregnancy & Newborn Magazine as the #1 Baby Product of 2010. It's also been featured on the Rachel Ray Show and The Ellen DeGeneres Show.
Katie was surrounded by creativity and invention from an early age. As a daughter of a seamstress, wood worker, painter and artist, Katie was often at her mother’s side watching and learning. In 2003 she graduated from Brigham Young University in Industrial Design, where she was recognized nationally for her furniture design and craftsmanship. It was there that she met and married Benjamin Richardson, a fellow product designer and, now, her partner in the business. Together they have 3 boys, ages 6, 4, and 2. The lethal combination of industrial design AND raising 3 kids is what has made Katie, Ben, and Puj such an international sensation.
