Meet Our Judges: Sophie Stericker
Creative Director, Hachette Children’s Books

Sophie Stericker has spent her entire career in children’s publishing. A graduate of University of the Arts London’s Camberwell College of Art and Design, Sophie has put her graphic design skills to work for a variety of publishers. She has worked as an art director and then Creative and New Product Development Director for HarperCollins Children’s Books, and as an art director at Egmont Publishing and Orchard Books prior to joining Hachette as Creative Director.

Hachette UK merged its three children’s businesses—Hachette Children’s Books, Orion Children’s Publishing and Little, Brown Books for Young Readers—into one division in 2014. Stericker is responsible for the creative strategy of all aspects of Hachette’s Children’s Group’s publishing and will represent art and design on the HGC board.

On working with image-makers Sophie says, “I have commissioned over a thousand artists and photographers during my career and never cease to be amazed by the quality and skill of our many talented image makers.”

Sophie joins Melissa Manlove, Louise Bolongaro, Orit Berman and Andrea D'Aquino on our 3x3 Picture Book Show jury.
