Hey! I’m Rachel.
Welcome to Beautifully Functional Design! This is my portfolio and home of the Wholehearted and Beautifully Functional blog. I am a graphic designer with a lot of print production experience. Basically, I believe that design should be beautifully functional and production ready. I also believe in the power of mental health alongside creativity.
As a designer. I am not just your designer, I am your companion from start to finish on any project. I will work with you to create a beautiful and functional design plus I will help you navigate all your production questions. Book design, branding, wedding invitations, beautique service menus, whatever your idea, I can help!
As a blogger. I’ve been on an amazing journey of mental health, self discovery and most recently the rediscovery of my creativity. I want to combine what I know about design with what I’ve learned on my mental health journey and share that with you on a weekly basis. I’m just a recovering design imposter who wants to help other creatives on their own journey!
As a person. I am nerdy, I love reading, I’m a gamer (video/role playing/tabletop), & I am a geek of many fandoms (Star Wars EU, Doctor Who & Critical Role to name a few). Hands down, my favorite role playing session has been dubbed “Mom Rage” by friends. It’s what happens when things get very real and extremely tense during a Force & Destiny campaign session because everyone (especially you) is so invested.
