Stephanie Hofmann

Stephanie Hofmann – Designer

I am an experienced illustrator who loves the surreal and gothic and creates eye catching, bold covers and maps for YA and adult fiction.


I am a freelance illustrator with a degree in graphic design based in the UK.

I have done illustrations for animations, book covers, children books, textiles, greeting cards and many magazines.

I have a love of the surreal and gothic and would describe my style as bold, colourful, decorative and detailed, sophisticated, quirky, whimsical and sometimes humorous. I mostly work digitally. I am also very interested in motion design and animated book covers and enjoy handlettering.

Each new project is a labor of love for me and I always strive to make it the best as I can. I find nothing more satisfying than seeing a beautiful new illustration out in the world and making you, the client, happy in the process. I really enjoy coming up with concepts and am aiming to find the essence of each project in my visual language.

I am fluent in German as well as English.
