Hi, I’m Rachel, an Irish designer currently living and working in London. I love carefully crafting inspired design solutions, and have an ever-expanding interest in all facets of the industry. I particularly like branding, art direction, editorial and web design. I’ve worked with startups, cultural institutions, luxury brands, a handful of eccentrics, and enjoyed it all.

I have a background in classical ballet and contemporary dance. I eat mostly plants, so no meat and unfortunately no gluten either. I like hiking up mountains and making phonecalls in the bath. I do not like people who kick pigeons.
