Welcome to Rachel Thompson Design! I am a Cambridge based illustrator, specialising in bespoke, hand drawn illustrations for individuals and commercial clients. I graduated from Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design in 2007 with a degree in Theatre Design.
In my hand painted and bespoke wedding stationery, I work with clients to capture the spirit of their wedding day through drawing, whether that be a rustic barn dance under a tipi, or an elegant banquet in a stately home. If you want a truly personalised wedding, then take a look on my Wedding page on this site for some handmade inspiration.
With a love for old and unusual buildings, and taking inspiration from the historic sites and period houses of Cambridge, I create bespoke architectural illustrations. I love to capture the character and personality of buildings, especially a slightly wonky doorway or higgledy line of bricks.
I love living in Cambridge and enjoy being part of the creative community here! I am a member of the Cambridge Creative Network and the Cambridge Illustrators and have exhibited my work around the city. You can also find my work stocked in the Museum of Cambridge shop, and the Urban Larder.
Fancy a portrait of your beloved home, your wedding venue, a Christening gift or you and your husband on your wedding day? Contact me on firstname.lastname@example.org for all commission enquiries.
