Rachel Gale

Rachel Gale loves to draw. Her inspiration comes from anything and everything around her. From nature, animals and patterns to food and hand drawn typography – creating designs which make people smile is Rachel’s passion! She adores pattern, typography and a bold use of colour creating vibrant, fun and characterful illustrations that are playful and strong. Rachel works from her home studio in Frome, with her partner and young daughter.

Each product starts on the drawing board. Rachel works with diverse media, from traditional pencil to digital. The brand originated from a range of animal postcards and grew from there. Mr Bear quickly became very popular so she launched her first baby gift – the Mr Bear Babygrow. Made with the softest organic cotton, and screen printed with her original line drawing.

Every design is unique, making these items extra special. Rachel’s designs are fresh and friendly with parenthood-inspired sentiments. They are printed in the UK using eco-friendly inks. From the drawing stage and sourcing to the packaging and posting, she strives to offer the best quality products with a speedy and friendly service to go with it, not to mention lots of love and care thrown in!

As a freelance illustrator Rachel works on a diverse range of creative projects with a broad client base – from logo and packaging design to bespoke stationery, home portraits and more! If you have something you would like bringing to life, just get in touch.

Rachel currently sells her planet-friendly products from her online store – House Of Mr Bear plus her range is also stocked in various independent shops in England – mainly London, Frome and world wide too.

You can find Rachel’s work in Seed and Ground on Catherine’s Hill and she is thrilled to have her first stall at The Frome independent Market in 2022. You can also follow her on Instagram.
