Raquel Rei is a graphic designer specialized in editorial projects and design for print.
Developing essence focused and detail oriented concepts, she’s fascinated by the tactile experience with experimental but rigorous and delicate outputs.

Over the last 10 years, she has been working alongside amazing clients, from cultural institutions to small and big scaled commercial businesses, art directing and designing books and magazines, visual identities, packaging and labels, campaigns and digital media assets.

She believes in design as a tool for thought, for questioning and for change. Looking for a sustainable and meaningful design practice, she partners with people and projects that push for a better world.
