Rachel Christenson

If you want to make something pop, Rachel is your Girl, a recent Midwestern transplant and GFP in-house designer who brings a complementary non-industry perspective to the team. Rachel worked first at an investment bank and later at an organ and tissue donation agency before making the jump into books. In her previous job she designed marketing and public education materials, corporate communications, print and web advertising (including billboards and even wrapping company vehicles and a light rail train!), tradeshow displays, and company swag. With her eye for detail and incredible design sensibility, Rachel adds her inimitable touch to book interiors, client websites, infographics, and more.

Fine Print

Another one of our well-rounded Girls, Rachel has a BBA in marketing and a certificate in web design. She’s also studied everything from photography and screenprinting to mixed-media collage and pattern design. While her background includes event branding and planning, information design, and social media management, she secretly wants to be a roller derby queen—but is terrified of breaking bones. Those girls are tough!
