From Amsterdam to
the French mountains
After working as an Art Director for the Amsterdam newspaper Het Parool - and receiving the "Award for the World's Best Designed Newspaper" in 2017 and 2018 - after living the city life in Amsterdam for many years, I decided to take a sabbatical.
So I left to the French mountains...
...and didn't come back...
The mountains are filling my heart with joy and inspiration,
and I love the quiet life in the fantastic French countryside.
My name is Floor Koop, I'm Dutch and am a freelance illustrator,
editorial designer and teacher.
