Learn from designers with industry expertise.

I love seeing people surprise themselves and open their minds to new ways of doing things. Design allows us to see everyday things from a unique and interesting perspective.

Rachel Broaders

Rachel Broaders is originally from Ireland, where she worked for 3 years in design before joining Shillington and moving to London. She worked in various Dublin-based studios such as Atelier, Detail and Together We Create, where she gained experience in book design, branding and art direction. Her main passion within design is branding but has an ever-expanding interest in all facets of the industry. She has found a new love in teaching and finds it to be one of the most rewarding things she’s done to date.

What do you love about design?

I love that design can really change the way people think about certain things. It has the power to open people’s minds to new ways of doing things and can really surprise them, make them smile, or laugh, or consider ideas or subjects from a different perspective.

Why do you teach?

I believe that I have something important to contribute to emerging designers about how best to position themselves in the industry based on their own personal talents, likes and dislikes. There is a different fit for every designer and it is important to explore and make mistakes in order to find out what that is.

I also believe that teaching is a very important part of creating a better design industry overall. By teaching others based on my own experiences, I feel that I am giving something back to the wider design world.

Tell us about your design career outside of Shillington.

Upon graduating I was chosen to be one of three design graduated in Ireland to take part in the Threex3 Internship programme where I had the opportunity to work in three of Dublin’s top design studios. Following this I began working for Together We Create, a formerly New York-based company who specialise in branding and art direction.

What or who are you loving right now?

Mike Perry and Sara Andreasson for illustration; Anagrama, Design Army, Studio Frith for design studios; for projects I’m loving Post’s Dodecal, the identity for this years Venice Biennale by Atelier David Smith and Hudson-Powell’s London Fashion week; lastly for editorial and book design, The Gentlewoman magazine and the new Ottolenghi book “Simple“.

If you were a typeface, what would you be?

Sharp Grotesk: Swiss styling collides with unexpected construction and wonky imperfectionism. Has an exuberant personality and incredible range of moods.
