Hi, I’m Rachel Shadbolt, the freelance graphic designer behind Vassallo, based in Bedfordshire, UK. With over 26 years experience, I produce creative designs across brand identity, print and web. 


I graduated in 1997 from Reading University with a degree in Typography & Graphic Communication, and initially worked as a designer in publishing houses and advertising agencies across London. I then moved on

to working for design and marketing consultancies based in Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire, before going freelance in 2009.


Throughout my career I have been fortunate enough to work for brands such as Unilever, GlaxoSmithKline, BlackBerry, Mars Drinks, RSPB, Baxters, InBev, Peppadew, Capita and Costa. More recently I have been focusing on helping local businesses with their design needs. For full details of my professional experience please visit my profile on LinkedIn.

Whether you are based locally, or further afield, and are looking to start a new project, big or small, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.
