Rachel Worcou


I’m a graphic designer currently freelancing and working part-time. With more than 5 years experience in the industry, I’ve had the opportunity to work across teams large and small to deliver campaigns and creative solutions for sectors spanning hospitality, health, beauty and more. I’ve had the opportunity to host exhibitions and speak alongside peers at events and lectures for RMIT, The Design Kids, General Assembly which have all been really rewarding experiences.

What does success look like to you?

Working in balance, purpose and passion while building sustaining relationships of mutual reciprocity.  

How does your job fit into your life - does it feel like a 9-5, or maybe it’s more of a calling?

Right now I’m working part time as a freelancer, which I’m enjoying as it allows me to carve out space for personal projects, self-learning and various areas of personal interest.

Whose work are you currently admiring?

I’m currently admiring the work of Alice Grandoit and Nu Goteh for their work with Deem Journal.

Can you talk us through one of the challenges you’ve faced during your career?

A really great challenge I’m facing is understanding how to maintain rhythm and momentum while freelancing. There’s not much of a safety net with freelancing, there are subtle pressures to be on or thinking about the next thing, especially when working from home - so I’m learning the importance of upholding boundaries and maintaining balance within my work.
