Zoe Ranucci

Zoe Ranucci – Designer

I specialize in illustration for children's picture books, chapter books, book cover illustration, and character design.

Overview

Hello! I am a children's book illustrator, graphic designer, and even dabble with writing. With over 25 years in the creative business, I operate as an independent graphic design and illustration studio in Belmont, North Carolina (just outside of Charlotte). My specialty is character development for companies geared towards children as well as children's book illustration. My illustrations are produced digitally utilizing my iPad Pro and the Procreate app. Proficient in Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator and InDesign as well.


I really enjoy creating whimsical characters and love to infuse my work with humor. My style would be described as fun, colorful, playful, a bit on the cartoony side.


It is my goal to bring each client's vision to life, and communication is key. I pride myself on being easy to work and efficient. I've work directly with authors from creating the storyboard, characters and page art from sketch to finish as well as page layout and text placement. You could call me a one-stop-shop as I have agency art direction background, plus illustration as well as graphic design skills to offer.
