Hello! I'm Rachel, a designer and illustrator living in Seattle, Washington. Alethea and Ruth began as an artistic outlet for Alethea (me) and Ruth (my sister), and has grown into a creative platform for my freelance design. Alethea and Ruth are our middle names.
I'm an obsessive doodler and illustrator, and I love bold patterns, great type, and lots of color. Among other things, I find inspiration in flowers, textiles, shopping, seasons, and location (I grew up in the Midwest and lived in Southern California).
When I'm not designing, I'm probably hanging out with my husband and son. We love exploring Seattle neighborhoods, sampling lattes with friends at local coffee shops, and thinking of ways to reorganize and remodel our new-to-us 1920's Seattle house.
Can you design my wedding invitations and holiday cards for me?
I'm not designing custom wedding invites or holiday stationery at this time, sorry!
Other than wedding invitations and holiday cards, do you do any custom design?
I take on a very select number of custom projects as my schedule allows. To inquire please send me a message through my contact form or if you prefer email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Can you customize your Minted design for my wedding/event?
I can't customize anything you see on Minted's website, but Minted has excellent customer service and will generally work with you to customize whatever you’d like. Send them an email at email@example.com to chat about your project.
