Rachel Jackson

Studio Fellow 2021

Rachel Jackson graduated from Washington University in St. Louis in the spring of 2019 with a degree in Communication Design. Her practice is largely guided by principles of collectivism and accessibility, and reflects a personal attempt to decentralize the elitism she feels is ever-present in Western design aesthetics. Rachel is most interested in the application of design when it comes to democratic, household objects, including t-shirts, zines, and mass-produced prints. She’s often drawn to appropriating imagery from found materials, dually as an investigation of what factors led to its disposal and as an effort to reinvigorate visual languages of the past.
