As a relentless overachiever, Rachel Maher refuses to take stairs one at a time. If you ask her why she became a designer, she’ll relate to you a series of anecdotal non-answers, culminating with, “It seemed unlikely that I would excel in bull-riding or deep space exploration, which were my other two options.” Rachel has a low tolerance for hackneyed concepts, commonplace solutions, and anything preceded by a hashtag. If given the opportunity to meet anyone, she would choose whomever invented buffalo sauce and thank them for their positive contribution to society.
