Otherwild Goods & Services is a graphic design studio, a store, a community center, a workshop and an event space in Los Angeles, CA. Otherwild was founded within, and inspired by a vast, multidisciplinary community of talented artists and designers.

Rachel Berks (b. 1978, Boston MA) received her B.A. from Sarah Lawrence College in 2000, with concentrations in visual art, gender studies and modern dance. Upon graduating, she worked in the art department of NYLON Magazine (2003-4), where she assisted in photo production and contributed collage, illustration and writing. Berks was recruited to join Ford Models’ newly established New York-based in-house art department in 2004, promoted to Art Director for the company’s international corporate network in 2006, and appointed Creative Director through 2011. 

Berks currently lives and works in Los Angeles, where she runs Otherwild, a retail space that also functions as her graphic design studio.
