"During my 20 years plus career within the MarComms space, Rach is simply one of the most creative designers I have had the pleasure to work with. In addition to her creative skills, she understands how to the balance the requirements of a multiple stakeholders in a corporate environment. She works to brief, takes on feedback and ideas from her clients and always delivers on time. She provides support across four time zones and in both New Zealand and Australia. I would not hesitate to recommend her for any graphic design project. My colleagues and I see Rach as an extended member of the sales and marketing team."

"Working alongside Rachael to rebrand our school prospectus has been a dream. She has been responsive and intuitive to our needs and very quickly understood the feeling that we wanted to convey. I appreciated the way she would bring her own skills to the table creatively and how each proof would see our vision evolve until finally we have a product we are thrilled with: Clean, slick, professional and reflective of us. Nga mihi nui kia koe Rachael- we will definitely be back for more!"

"Rachael has worked with us at Onehunga Community News for 12 years. Rachael is responsible for the design of our magazine - and we are often complimented on its quality and professionalism. Although we sometimes give her design directives, she mostly works on her own initiative, and there is very little we have to change. Rachael is reliable, flexible, patient, and professional.. We work very closely with her during the layout and proofing process, and we have a good working relationship - nothing is too much for her. We totally recommend her design services."

"I first contacted Rach to do some branding for our school.

We had some images and ideas and she quickly generated a range of options

for us. We went through heaps of iterations as we got feedback from all our 

diverse stakeholders - teachers, Board of Trustees, Maori whanau- and Rach continued to

respond positively regardless of how many times we asked for variations.

Because of this extensive background work, we ended up with a very recognisable, distinctive and adaptable logo which we've been able to put to a wide range of uses. We continue to use Rach as she delivers quickly and responsively. Although we have never met face to face, it feels like we have a relationship."

"From our beginnings RM Design has been a key part of our journey. Rachael has captured our ideas into  workable designs with everything from our logo, business card, letterheads &  labeling. Once we have signed off a job it arrives to us in a format that our printers can easily work from. Highly recommend this talented individual who is a pleasure to work with."

"I've worked with Rachael on a number of graphic design projects over the last three years. My projects commonly involve displaying complex information or concepts in clear and attractive diagrams, posters or brochures. I usually only have half an idea of what I want, and I often require the magic to happen in an unreasonably short timeframe. Rachael has delivered beyond my expectations every time, somehow transforming my half-baked briefs into something I never could have either articulated or anticipated!"

"We have worked with Rachel for a number of years now and she has consistently provided fresh ideas while keeping true to our image. Quick turn around and a can do attitude.

We really enjoy working with her."

"Rach MacLean of RM Design was an absolute joy to work with. She understood the brief provided and created a prospectus that was better than we could have imagined. I was completely new to the task of creating a 12 page booklet and Rach so very kindly held my hand through the entire process. She is an excellent communicator. She willingly made all the little changes we asked for and did these in a timely manner and we are so delighted with the final product, as are our clients. I would not hesitate to work with Rach again on any future design projects big or small.
