Rach studied English literature at A-Level, then went on to study Visual Merchandising and 3D Design after becoming obsessed with window displays and prop-making.
She continued with this as well as making gifts and homewares while she worked at Yell.com as a website editor, moving onto client management and eventually process improvement.
Sean completed a Foundation course in Art & Design at the famous Bournville college, then went on to study Illustration at Plymouth University in 2003.
He worked with friends designing websites for three years, before taking an opportunity to work as part of a larger team in the website department at Yell.com, where he went on to hold various positions: first, as deputy manager of websites, then as technical support team leader, and later as manager of a team of seven people in the department for 'Connect', Yell.com's leading digital marketing product.
RACH & SEAN
In 2019, in a burst of spontaneity, Rach and Sean decided to leave their day jobs, buy and convert a van and travel around Europe. To top up travel funds they started bidding for freelance digital marketing and design work as PolyWood Studios and the business has been growing ever since!
Thank you PolyWood Studios! Re-branding is always challenging but you have and are making the journey exciting and fun!
