Who Am I

Hello! My name is Rachel Dallaire. I am a third-year graphic design student at John Abbott College and I am an extremely social person who expresses her love for art digitally.


I am detail oriented, responsible, charismatic and have excellent people skills which is why my niche of knowledge would be directed towards marketing and graphic design for brand companies. I have always taken interest for the advertising and photography aspect behind these companies. Now that I am in the process of learning the marketing aspect as well, I hope to be involved in this section too.

Ever since I was young, I was a very visual person especially when it came to learning. This resulted in my soft spot for creative photography and advertisements.

My dream job would be to work in a brand company revolving around clothes, shoes or beauty products. I have always admired these types of companies as I have been surrounded with models for various companies. I had the opportunity to observe all the work put in before the final advertisement so after a while I started to get the hang of it. For now, this is a very general direction but I would be happy to explore any direction my path takes me.


After I finish my DEC in Graphic & Web Design, I would like to continue in university to obtain a BAC in marketing and then start my career as a graphic designer. After three years of knowledge and different perspectives I would like to finally apply the skills that I have learned. I would love to work in a branding company where I would focus more on advertisements, logos, photography and marketing. Above everything, one of my biggest goals during my career is expanding my knowledge and ideas as much as possible. I hope to gain experience and learn from my colleagues in. Come take a look at my portfolio!
