I have worked with many talented and exceptional people over the span of my career. Some of them have been gracious enough to comment on the work I’ve done for them:
Type of Work: Magazine Design and Copyediting
As the managing editor of a scientific magazine (Biomedical Computation Review), I worked with Rachel for more than ten years—and I would be working with her still if the magazine’s funding hadn’t ended! Rachel is a joy to work with. For each issue of the magazine, she and I brainstormed cover ideas that she then executed beautifully. She also poured her creativity into every page of every issue of our 28- to 32-page magazine, making them interesting to look at and fun to read. In addition to her design prowess, Rachel is an amazing copy-editor who knows the value of a well-placed comma or hyphen and the importance of having a consistent style throughout a publication. I would not hesitate to hire Rachel for any type of design or copyediting project. She’s a gem. [Note from Rachel: I worked on this project under my other business name: Wink Design Studio. But the work is all mine.]
—Katharine Miller, editor
Type of work: Brochure/Flyer Design, Email Newsletter Copy Editing, Technical Support
Rachel is my go-to woman for help for everything from brochures and business cards to helping me send out informational emails that look interesting. I would be lost with her, honestly. Often I don’t have the time, skills or tools to devote to making my advertising look the best it can. Rachel has fantastic ideas and is always so helpful. I’m grateful for the way her mind works and sees the details.

Type of work: Logo Design, Web Design, Business Cards
I have been so impressed with Rachel at Penpoint Creative. She created my logo for Michelle’s Toolbox and I was blown away. If you have any updates, changes, edits on your webpage, she changes it in a timely manner. Right away, pretty much. I could not be happier with Penpoint Creative. If you need business cards made, she does it for you! Thank you Penpoint! I am really happy with my website as well. Rachel did a great job.
—Michelle Spaulding, owner, Michelle’s Toolbox
Type of work: Web Design
When it comes to creating professional, attractive, and effective websites, there is no company that can surpass Penpoint Creative. Thanks to Rachel’s talent, our site has been successful and productive.

Type of work: Web Design and Graphics
“Rachel has the ability to take the concepts I have sent her and perceive our clients’ taste and style preference. This is a special gift and one that I do not have. Rachel is professional and delivers design concepts within the specifications that I have given. She understands the importance of communicating the customer’s vision through her design, whether it be comfortable, sophisticated, rustic or whatever fits the client’s needs. Rachel has consistently delivered projects within the time we need them. Thanks for your excellent service.”
—Jim Adamek, efocus LLC
Type of work: Book Cover Design for Canyon Secret
“I am very satisfied with the professional service I received from Rachel Jones. She immediately contacted me following a referral … and began the process without any delay She was also very available for questions and discussion. Rachel requested, and I provided, a synopsis of the story, time period photographs, a biography, and a short snapshot view of the story. From these documents, she managed to capture the mood and intent of my vision for the story. She added beautiful artwork in addition to documents I provided to her and she blended it in perfectly. The cover will go a long ways in attracting potential readers to my novel. The cover is a piece of art within itself!”
How easy was it to communicate with the designer?: “Rachel maintained email and telephone contact throughout the entire process. We seemed to hit it off immediately and communication with her was very easy. She listened to my requests and communicated her ideas back to me. Rachel made it seem almost too easy.”
Would you work with the designer again in the future?: “Absolutely! I plan to stay in touch with Rachel so that in the future we can work on the cover of my next novel. In addition, I would recommend her to others needing her design services.”
