I’m Rachel.

Welcome! Are you looking to shape the future of design? So am I, and I have fought to get here, to follow a path I have forged myself and grow into a designer who’s name appears alongside innovative and gorgeous work. I am learning and growing every day and I truly love design and illustration, I am so thankful to have found my passion!

Just a few years ago, I was working an unfulfilling job as an office manager in furniture retail. I’d been in office admin and management for different furniture stores for almost 10 years, and while I enjoyed working in the furniture industry, I was starting to feel restless. I had always had a love for graphic design and art, and decided it was time to move from hobby to a career. I began to pursue my Associate of Arts in Graphic Design, and now I am chasing my BFA at Academy of Art University. I started freelancing and illustrating as I studied, under the name Vilks (Vilks Design Co), and am currently living and working just outside of Chicago, IL. I am determined to be a part of the future of great design!
