Hi! I’m Rachel.

I’m an Art Director with a passion for developing brands and designing human-centered experiences. I have start-up roots, agency exposure, and a fascination for the intersection of human behavior and technology. From Washington D.C. and currently calling Barcelona home, I believe design should create social value and make the world a better place, one interaction at a time. If you agree and have a project in mind, please reach out!

Rachel was a pleasure to work with, she has a great understanding of both design and development, a great sense of reasoning behind her artwork, and extremely dedicated. Over our time together at Classy she was able to design and do the front-end development for her solutions. Rachel is a great team player, honest and focused on the benefit of the company she works for, I would be happy to work with her in the future.

Rachel came into Simplexity with a willingness and eagerness to succeed that I had not seen on my team in quite some time… Through diligence and a passion for learning she quickly surpassed seasoned designers on the team. Rachel is an organized professional that showed up on time ready to work and help her team anyway possible. I wish she was still with us and she will be an asset on any team anywhere.

Rachel is one of the most ambitious, passionate and meticulous creative individuals I’ve ever worked with. Her ability to manage and impeccably execute any given assignment is only overshadowed by her extraordinary work ethic. She works evenings, weekends and even during vacation (without being asked) to meet a deadline or complete a project. Her strong sense for art direction and design solidifies her role as an integral piece to any creative organization.

Rachel’s fastidious nature and desire to go the extra mile has helped to transform Wirefly’s promotional merchandising creative this year. She was the lead designer for several of the most successful campaigns in Q1… Time and time again, we hear how easy it is to work with Rachel; her greatest traits as an employee are her team spirit and willingness to help others. She sees every opportunity as a learning experience which shows in her creative approach to projects.

Rachel is an extremely talented designer with a love for sports. Which could be the reason she’s such a good team player. Her ability to draw from elements of psychology, visual design, and communication made her a valuable member on our creative team at Simplexity. Creativity, problem-solving, passion and attention to detail, she’s got it all. It’d be a pleasure to be able to work with her again in the future and any team would be lucky to have her. And seriously, she will probably kick your butt in basketball. 🙂

STEP ONE

Define the problem; understand the purpose

USERS ARE KEY

Few know better than the customer

CONTENT FIRST

Design won’t save a bad product

BE A GOOD HUMAN

Create a positive impact

“Content precedes design. Design in the absence of content is not design, it’s decoration.”
