about bloom

The Bloom Design Company provides a collection of uplifting, encouraging resources that empower and inspire creative side hustlers to turn their passions into profits.


A brief history

This website was started back in 2014 as an online portfolio to showcase freelance graphic design projects by founder Rachel Cottrell. It quickly became a creative outlet and blog that allowed Rachel to share her passion for design and business, as a way to influence other entrepreneurial designers.

As the years have gone on, this space has gained the greater purpose of being primarily a resource for creatives looking to turn their hobbies into side hustles. We publish inspiring, informative content to educate on a whole range of topics including online marketing, graphic design, balancing the responsibilities of business and other full-time responsibilities like education, careers, parenthood, and even other hustles.
