Last year, I did two things that changed my life, I graduated with a 1st Class Masters Degree and then decided to move to Seville for a year of Spanish and Sun. Hello, my name is Rachel, I am a creative. I create drawings, paintings, print designs, motion graphic animations, digital artworks and many many mood boards and journals. I would describe myself as; brave, ambitious and talkative. I passionately believe that everyone has something worth sharing. With that said, I have experience with people, projects and problems. I am excited for all things digital, in past projects I pushed the boundaries of textile design by transforming print collections into motion graphics, bringing wonderful patterns to life though movement and perspective. My design signature is modern and graphic, I design for a range of products and styles that express my passions for radiant colours and patterns. At the end of the day, a common thread to all my successful ventures is my determination to not fail and a character that will always ask if I don’t know.Locked Pro Plan feature
