About me

Ciao! I’m Rachel and I design custom and ready-made paper goods. After graduating with a BFA in graphic design, my very first job out of college was at The Knot in New York. It was there that I became well-versed in all aspects of weddings. As my friends and family members got engaged and married, I started designing their invitations. Now based in Santa Monica, I create wedding invitations, baby announcements, thank you notes, and stationery for other special occasions. When I’m not dreaming up new designs, I’m searching for the perfect cookie recipe, cycling around town with my husband and trusty pup, or dusting my bocce ball trophies.

If you’d like to see some of my graphic design and brand development work, please visit my portfolio website.

About Lupa & Pepi

Family and close friends inspire my designs. They’ve also inspired the name of my company. My great-great-aunt Antonietta “Lupa” Lupacchino and my grandmother Maria Giovanna “Pepi” Pepino cooked a lot of pasta, meatballs and gravy, but more importantly, they established many of my family’s traditions. Whether you are honoring a family tradition or starting a new one, I’d love to collaborate with you on a design for your next occasion, whatever it may be.
