A concept-led, interdisciplinary designer with two years of professional experience and a First Class BA (Hons) in Textile Design. Using a bold and graphic style characterized by uncomplicated colour palettes and pared-back forms, my work explores themes of community, interpersonal relationships, and the everyday.

If you'd like to propose a project idea, collaboration, or anything else, please don't hesitate to drop me a message – I’d love to chat! rosierackham.com @rosierackham
