Semadar Megged brings to her studio her broad experience as an art director and designer at Penguin Young Readers, working now with publishers such as Simon & Schuster, Scholastic and Holiday House, and also offering in depth one-on-one picture book dummy development for yet unpublished as well as under contract illustrators.

Over the years she has worked closely with award-winning and best-selling (Caldecott Medal, The New York Times Best Sellers List and Best Illustrated Children's Books, The New York Book Show and Society of Illustrators’ Original Art Show) author/illustrators and illustrators including Ed Young, David Small, Loren Long, Rafael López, Hyewon Yum, Nancy Carpenter, Will Hillenbrand, and Patricia Polacco, in addition to working with debut talents (at the time) including Renata Liwska and Ale Barba.

Currently Semadar is dividing her time between an ongoing part time work at Simon & Schuster and her other projects.  Alongside her work on children's books, she is a freelance adult trade book cover designer.
