I’m a freelance graphic designer based in Eastbourne, East Sussex, with over 18 years of experience producing logos, print and digital design.
I really enjoy the whole process, from initial ideas through to print, and with the experience of running a repro house, I have become a very confident and accomplished artworker with a strong understanding of print and studio efficiency.
I love working as part of a team, or closely with clients on a one-to-one basis. I’m fun to work with (or so I’ve been told!), and find that I thrive on responsibility. I’m always seeking new challenges, such as the art of html, which I seem to have grasped very quickly.
Since leaving Eastbourne Art College with an Art & Design Diploma under my belt, I have been lucky enough to work with some highly creative designers, and award-winning design agencies in Brighton, all of whom have helped develop my creativity and skills to a high level.
My skills stretch across a wide variety of experience, such as branding, advertising, packaging, travel brochures, magazines, publishing, direct-mail, infographics, exhibition design, websites and (more recently) interior design.
So give me a design brief and I’ll happily create a variety of workable visuals for you, or give me a print project to work through and I’ll quickly and accurately artwork it and get it sent off to print, all whilst keeping your client happy. Whatever the project, I’ll work hard for you with a smile!

This is the easiest review I have ever had to write as Rachels professionalism and artistic skill in developing my website were quite simply amazing.
Her ability to capture my ideas so quickly amazed me beyond belief and she made critical suggestions to improve the look and content which gave the website so much more depth.
I was extremely particular with my ideas and nothing was a problem for Rachel even when I persistently changed colours and layouts to then change them back to the original!
She was such a pleasure to deal with and I would recommend her if you are looking for someone who will go and above and beyond.

Working with Rachel on this book felt like a partnership from the word go. The book is a journal of my grandson’s first five years, and Rachel’s input to it was transformational.
I was delighted – thrilled, in fact – to see Rachel’s initial designs. She chose a ‘scrapbook’ look-and-feel, with lively, varying layouts of images and text, and I could see straight away that this would engage and reward the reader and was definitely the right direction to go in. We went for a large landscape format with hard covers.
The rest of the book (124 pages, 17,000 words of text and almost 200 images) came together seamlessly from my point of view. It was exciting and satisfying to see the pages brought to vivid life. We had a couple of passes of minor text and image changes, and the job was done. Rachel handled all the arrangements with Blurb, which suited me perfectly, and brought the job in on budget, and at a competitive and very reasonable price.
I believe that the enthusiasm Rachel brought to this project along with her talent and experience made a huge difference to the quality of the result. It also made working with Rachel a pleasure.
The book was produced for my family and the reaction from them has been one of total delight. I’m grateful to Rachel for all her input to what was for me a labour of love, and I recommend her warmly and wholeheartedly.
