Welcome to Paper & Desk, a Brisbane-based freelance graphic design studio.

I'm Rachel, the graphic designer behind Paper & Desk, and I work with small- to medium-sized businesses to create beautiful publications - both print and digital - and general marketing collateral. My clients come from the food, fashion, retail, homewares, skincare, consulting and real estate industries.

From a young age, I experimented with paint and colour, and dreamt of turning my passion for design into something more than a hobby one day. This came true in January 2017, when I launched my own small-scale graphic design business from my bedroom with a laptop, an Adobe Creative Cloud subscription, and some pens and notebooks salvaged from my uni days.

Since then, I have been contracted for branding projects, publication, packaging, EDM design, social media artwork, and the design of marketing assets such as brochures, flyers and internal company documents. My online portfolio in this website features a small selection of client work, including my largest freelance project to date — a 68 page in-house magazine for the Venzin Group, which owns eight popular Brisbane dining establishments.

Today, I have an extra computer for bigger design jobs, an ever-expanding stationery collection, and the privilege of working with a bunch of amazing clients.

I'd love to continue doing the same - if you're looking for a designer to help you bring your design vision to life, get in touch! Below is a sample of the things Paper & Desk offers - feel free to enquire more about your specific design needs.
