2001 - 2006

Rachel attended Western Michigan University where she completed her BFA in Graphic Design and graduated with Honors. She learned the skills necessary to transition her from the world of art into the world of graphic design.

2006 - 2008

Upon graduation, Rachel landed a job at the former Six Degrees Magazine (currently 944) in Detroit as Advertising Graphic Designer. The fast paced introduction to the real world gave her no choice but to keep up and sharpen her skills. She worked with an impressive number of clients and became very good at multi-tasking and deadlines. As she developed her relationship with the business owners of Detroit, her freelance work became a full time side job, and she formed her first company. It was a month later that she was offered a full time contractor position at Carlson
Marketing Worldwide as Art Director on the Saturn Account. With only six months of experience under her belt, she jumped at the opportunity to enter the advertising industry, all while holding down her other two positions with the magazine and her own clients. For nine months, she balanced all three jobs and gained much insight from having three unique vantage points. It was at the end of that time that she turned down a full time job offer with Carlson, quit the magazine and moved to Cali.

2008 - Present

After closing out her Detroit based business, Rachel co-founded designRACY in late 2008 and it's been running strong ever since. Based out of sunny Venice Beach, there is no shortage of inspiration to be found, and Rachel has followed her intuition and desire to live her dream life in California.
