Stephanie began her career as a designer at Walker Books, where she learnt how to craft beautiful picture books from inspirational art directors and editors. In a blink of an eye fifteen years flew past and she moved to Orchard books as Assistant Art Director. In 2010 she was asked to join a new publishing house, Nosy Crow. When Bloomsbury came knocking at her door in 2016 and asked if she would like to join them as their Creative Director of Children’s, of course she jumped at the chance.
Since joining Bloomsbury, she has stretched herself creatively, working on long extents and older illustrated fiction. She has just designed her first ever mono, middle grade fiction title, and she’s still learning and looking forward to all the books to come.
