Rachel Bonness // I'm a UK based freelance Graphic Designer and I have recently established a small design studio with my partner Daniel Geoghegan called Southern Heart Studio. Rachel Bonness Design is my personal website that features my portfolio and my blog about all things design.

  • DESIGN BLOGGER

    I update my blog regularly on anything & everything that goes on in the design industry. From current design trends & upcoming designers, to blog posts that will help you in your creative process. I also throw in a few home & lifestyle musings. My blog posts are very well received and some have reached 4,000+ repins on Pinterest.

  • DIY
    PROJECTS

    My obsession with DIY projects started when I began using Pinterest a few years ago. I was living as a design student but I was wanting to harness my creativity in a low-cost way so this also played a big part in getting involved with DIY schemes. I tag all my DIY posts with the tag ‘DIY’ so take a browse and get your creative juices flowing.

  • ALL THINGS PAPER!

    I love designing for print and this is a passion that started at university whilst studying for my degree. I create bespoke wedding stationery & invitations, personalised birth prints, business cards, postcards, greetings cards and much more! I can print some items from my studio. Take a look at my portfolio for all my paper based projects.

    Hello! Well today the weather is raining but what a fab few weeks of sunshine we have had up until now. I went to visit my sister’s family in York recently for my nephews first birthday. York is a gorgeous place and I can’t wait to go back for a bit longer so I can take a lot of photos and explore a bit more. Continue reading

    The Lisbonette Translations is a one-woman enterprise focused on providing translation services.

    It’s been 2 months since I moved to The Isle of Wight and it has been great.  There have been a lot of beach visits and the weather has been lovely, so a lot of time in the sunshine sitting in the garden or on a walk as well. My creative CV’s have really picked up recently and I’ve had a lot of orders come in for them. I’ll be doing a special blog post on creative CVs / Resumes soon so look out for that. Continue reading

  • BESPOKE WEDDING STATIONERY DESIGN

    AUTHOR: // CATEGORY: My Designs

    I’ve had the pleasure of working with a lovely client this year to create bespoke wedding stationery. The brief was to have it ‘different’ ‘stand out’ and ‘modern’. I do like a brief where I get to be as creative as possible so I found the job really enjoyable … although it can be nerve-wracking sending through the designs. Continue reading

  • LETTERPRESS BUSINESS CARDS

    AUTHOR: // CATEGORY: Design Trends

    I don’t think there is anything more beautiful than a Letterpress Business Card. Printed onto thick, uncoated paper stocks; letterpress business cards offer a unique, tangible and classic feel. Simplicity works really well on letterpress business cards with minimal colours – usually only one or two. The relief that it creates on the stock is perfect for embossing areas of the design.
