Rachel Brennan is our new Graphic Designer. She has a background in design research with a specialized understanding of design thinking methodologies. She is a graduate of the School of Design, Architecture, Art, and Planning (DAAP) at the University of Cincinnati.
Her time at DAAP has given her opportunities to travel and work across the greater Cincinnati, Atlanta, and Chicago areas. Rachel joins us after three years in research-led design and one year in book publishing.
Although a St. Louis native, Rachel now considers Northern Kentucky home. She currently lives here and dreams of one day owning several acres and some chickens. When she’s not designing, Rachel is usually playing sand volleyball, hosting friends, or trotting from music gig to gig with her husband as the unofficial stagehand.
