Herring Design, @whatimherring
Hello! My name is Rachel, and I'm the head of this here operation. In fact, I'm the whole operation! I have been designing and creating for as long as I can remember. When I was little, I was never without a crayon or marker in my hand. Continuing through school, I took art classes and created t-shirts and set designs for dances in high school. I knew I wanted to major in a design field, and I graduated with a degree in Interior Design and another in Business Administration at Auburn University. While in school, I learned how to use Adobe Creative Suite, and it ignited a desire to do graphic design. I moved to Birmingham for an internship and remained here after graduation. Still having a major interest in graphic design, I started Herring Design Co. to design custom invitations for people. The business slowly grew by word of mouth, and so did the products I offer! I love graphic design, so I continued beyond invitations to create stationery, prints, and promotional work. In addition to graphic design work, I have introduced different mediums into my online shop. I began creating string art and barnwood bamas in my carport and front yard (where I still am making them today). I also dabble in painting, where I specialize in pet paintings. I have been in a couple of art shows here in Birmingham, and I truly enjoy sharing the pieces I've made.
