Hi! I'm Rachel, a graphic designer and illustrator with experience collaborating with publishers to design covers, create illustrations, and build layouts. Genres I've worked with include fiction (especially dramas & thrillers), poetry, textbooks, and experimental pieces.
While the text is the most important part of any book, I love transmitting that excellence into an impactful visual form that quickly communicates the essence of your book to the reader. Professional presentation is part of what makes a book stand out on a shelf and encourages someone to pick it up and learn more. Whether you need a cover, illustration(s), or an interior layout, I would be thrilled to offer you my expertise!
I utilize a variety of drawing styles and approaches depending on what is most apt for the project. My skill set includes photography & photo manipulation, digital painting, traditional painting, ink drawings, and fine art drawings. I am comfortable with a range of topics and styles, so if you have something in mind, I would love to hear it and bring it to life!
Have any questions? Please feel free to message me.
Hope to work with you soon! :)

The Scout Guide
I interpret creative briefs and project direction in order to complete layout and design of print publications as well as create marketing collateral. As part of my job responsibilities I select and arrange type, manipulate imagery, and execute interior layouts.
I offer expert freelance design work including illustrative brand assets, promotional graphic materials, and book covers. I love visually representing an author's best work, while also keeping in mind the publisher's marketing aims and end reader's viewpoint.
While working with C&R Press, as well as their affiliated press, Mastodon, I designed book covers and typeset book interiors for genres spanning poetry, fiction, and non-fiction.
I shot & edited photos and created illustrative designs within a variety of styles.
