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.

A brief résumé...

I studied graphic design at the Minerva Art Academy in Groningen in 2006.

In 2008, I followed a "Typography and Editorial Design Master" at the EINA in Barcelona where I fell in love with editorial design.

After working as a graphic designer in Spain and Holland, I became an art director at the newspaper Het Parool, where my team and I received the "Award for the World's Best Designed Newspaper" in 2017 and 2018, as well the "European Newspaper of the Year" 2017.

I'm currently working as a freelance illustrator, and I'm teaching at

the Master at ESDesign in Barcelona.
