BACKGROUND

From a young age Rachael has always had a flair for creativity in many forms. Her success in the design industry began at the University of Leeds in 2005, with a BA (Hons) in Textile & Fashion Design, where Rachael developed her early signature style of layering, texturing & creating quirky, hand-drawn line work. After graduating she firstly worked in house as a full-time print technician with one of the leading textile companies in the north alongside side exhibiting her art in numerous galleries. Wanting to expand her experience & technical knowledge as a graphic designer, Rachael began working for one of the leading UK greetings card companies, where she specialised in surface pattern design for two years.

After Rachael had established her distinctive design style & had built up a wealth of technical knowledge, she decided to set up her own design studio in 2008 to fly solo. With plenty of creative freedom, Rachael began to develop her colourful & original design range & experiment with her own personal techniques, such as drawing with both her left & right hands & sometimes doodling with her eyes closed. In doing this, Rachael has ensured her designs are unique, fun & always full of energy. The free-spirited quality of Rachael’s design work has since attracted a wide range of buyers & clients globally.
