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'm loving the quiet life in the amazing French countryside.
My name is Floor Koop, Dutch and I'm a freelance illustrator,
editorial designer and teacher.
