Rachel E Millar is a signwriter and lettering artist based in Glasgow, Scotland. She specialises in designing and painting lettering by hand – large or small, interior or exterior, on shop fronts, on walls and almost any other surface. She works somewhere between design, art and craft, fusing traditional techniques with contemporary design. As well as commercial commissions, she also works on her own artwork and collaborations with a range of other creatives. Her own work experiments with colour and perspective in which she has exhibited in the UK and the USA.
She studied graphic design at Edinburgh College of Art and Massachusetts College of Art and Design, graduating in June 2016. She started her own business in July 2017 and has a studio space in Mount Florida Gallery & Studios in Glasgow.
