Rachel Antonia Designs comes from the mind of Owner and Artist Rachel Antonia Madej. Her passion for creating combined with her use of marker all started in 2017, with a community drawing challenge.
Rachel’s first taste of success was when she was hired by True Conversations LLC to create mug and t-shirt designs for their online shop, however it wasn’t long until Rachel launched her own products with The Whimsy Collection, a vibrant Summer themed line of journals, cards, and mugs.
In July 2018, Rachel launched her second line, The Even Whimsier Collection. Coming off the success of this and her Holiday Collection, Rachel Antonia Designs opened its official Ecommerce Website in August.
2018 did not end without the launch of one more collection, an opportunity to create journals for Honoring Hayden, a nonprofit organization, and featured Website Publications with CEO Blog Nation, My Corporation, and UpJourney. Rachel’s hand drawn cards were also featured in Connecticut Magazine’s Holiday Gift Guide’ December Issue in 2018.
In 2019, Rachel participated in ‘Complicit: Erasure of the Body,’ a Feminist Art Exhibit by Nasty Women Connecticut at the Yale Divinity School at Yale University. She was hired by Bee Happy Candle Company to design stickers for their website, launched two more collections, The Floral Galaxy Collection and The Endless Summer Collection, and as a brand entered shops in several locations across Connecticut.
These collections inspired Rachel to focus on her niche. Her work now incorporates celestial themes including moons, magic, crystals, skulls, and nature inspired themes like forest animals, mushrooms, and herbs. With the launch of The Phantom Fantasy Collection in March 2020, Rachel cemented her dream of incorporating Pagan practices into her artwork, an endeavor that is extremely meaningful to her.
Rachel also launched her first line of recipe cards in June of 2020, and has elevated her company to include, Portraits, Custom Product Designs, Branding and Logo Designs. Including custom branding for clients led to her working this year with Melina Palmer of the successful Podcast The Brainy Business, to create for them two logo designs and ten individual graphics for their interactive notebook and website. Additionally, Rachel worked on a new logo design for Sara Warren of Sage Rootz and 2 greeting cards and 2 t-shirt designs for the company Snik HQ.
In total, Rachel has launched ten collections and worked on countless projects for big and small businesses alike. She obtained her Bachelor’s degree while working full time and running Rachel Antonia Designs in its first year. Her witchy designs and Home Décor have united and inspired Witchy, Pagan, and Spiritual People from all corners of the world.
