Hi, I'm Rachel Mersky.

I’m a hands-on design leader with 16 years experience working in product, brand & communication design. I help happy teams build useful & lovable things with a healthy sprinkle of magic.

A little more about me
I thrive working in the trenches, solo or with small teams, building beautiful and useful things that resonate emotionally and deliver tangible impact. I specialize in end-to-end product design, brand identity, creative direction and facilitation, and I'm always seeking out new creative outlets.

My years of experience leading design in-house, agency-side, and working independently with startups uniquely position me to provide the kind of holistic design solutions that might typically be expected to require a larger design firm. Most recently, I spent four years as Head of Design at Fold, building one of the best debit cards in the market (if you ask me). Before that I was fortunate to lead varied and dynamic projects for clients such as Google, Samsung, Mailchimp, & Snap while at Beyond.
Let's work together!
for freelance projects. I'm excited to collaborate with startups, small businesses, and anyone excited to think differently.

Here’s an example of some things I’d love to work on:
📱  Digital Product Design
🌈  Brand Identity Design
💻  Web Design
🎨  Creative Direction
🎲  Game Design
🎬  Film & Video Production
🦊  Stop Motion Animation
✨  Any other wild ideas you have!

Got a project in mind or want to dive deeper into any of the above? Just shoot me an email at I'd love to hear about you, your project, and any initial timelines you have in mind. If you think I'd be the right fit, I'm all ears and ready to chat!
Bits & bobs

I've been called "a whirlwind of creative chaos." I just say I have a lot of hobbies.

I love seeing the imperfection of the artist's fingerprint,  a handmade touch in this pixel-perfect world.
