Suse Kopp

Suse Kopp – Designer

I am a cover designer with 20+ years' experience working on children's and YA books for renowned publishers. I am a book nerd.

Overview

"Language is wine upon the lips" – Virginia Woolf

As a book nerd, literature lover and typography enthusiast, I was already designing books while studying graphic design and I haven't stopped since! I am now a very experienced book cover designer working for most of Germany's top publishing houses including Penguin / Random House. I have designed works of authors as diverse as Karen McManus, Ruta Sepetys and Jean Webster and I am happiest when crafting covers for teens' titles.
Marci Lyn Curtis (The Leading Edge of Now): »My books never have simple themes that are easy to translate into images … it’s amazing that you were able to capture them so well! Thank you for doing such a beautiful job!«

For me, I start by reading your work and really immersing myself in your world. This allows me to convey your story in a clear and beautiful way on the cover, so you can capture your readers from that very first glance.
