MEET THE TEAM
RACHEL MARIA COX - FOUNDER & MANAGER
RMC is the founder and driving force behind Sad Grrrls Club. They're involved in booking and managing the events, managing and updating social media, budgeting and accounting, recording and mixing, and pretty much anything else you've seen so far with the Sad Grrrls Club name to it. They are also a singer-songwriter, and you can find out more about that side of things at RachelMariaCoxMusic.com.
When they're not biting off more than they can chew, they enjoy baths, knitting, and Daria.
RENAE TITCHMARSH - DESIGN & BRANDING
You may have noticed our website and social media profiles are all looking very unified and have some cool patterns going on in the background. You may also have noticed our new, simpler logo. This is what I am told is called "Branding" and it is all the amazing work of Newcastle-based Illustrator and Graphic Designer, Renae Titchmarsh.
Renae is responsible for all our visual stuff - compilation covers, posters, online profiles, merch and all that jazz - that comes out in 2016. She has a Diploma in Graphic Design and is currently studying a Bachelor of Natural History Illustration. You can view more of her work at RenaeTitchmarsh.com.
In her spare time, she enjoys travel, shooting film, baking pies and drinking soy piccolos.
