I would like you to meet Rachel Yoakum. She recently joined Cococello after interning with me for the last several months.
I’m very excited.
And here is a wee note from Rachel:
First thing is first, I am excited to finally say I am a graduate from Portland State University. I am honored to have received my Bachelors of Art from one of the most amazing design programs. Then again, I am a little biased. Now that I have ended my internship and started (officially) working with Deb, I have found being a part of Cococello to be simply amazing.
Since I have become a more or less validated adult, I have discerned some of the things that inspire me and how I design. Great music, the object of Oregon rain, long-winded stories, and thoughtful typography.
Typography. I am in love with well-constructed, hand drawn type. Slab serifs, type set to thin, and anything small caps are not too bad either. Which does not quite explain why my new favorite typeface is New Century Schoolbook.
If I am not drooling over type you’ll find me swimming in some body of water, singing in church, laughing with my friends and family, and wherever in between takes me.
Rachel has been and will continue to work closely with me on a variety of print and web design projects. With her help I also hope to design and develop more products for Coco Paperie!
Please give Rachel a warm hello.
