Design Director

Rachel Lopez Metzger

Rachel Lopez Metzger has been designing books for over fifteen years and has a degree in graphic design from California College of Arts and Crafts. Although cookbooks and children's picture books are her sweet spot, her love for design, print, and words inspires her no matter the book type or topic. Working with first-time authors and illustrators is a specialty and passion.

A California native who has never strayed too far from the coast, she currently resides on an island in the San Francisco Bay—though she leaves it frequently for sailing, wine-tasting, and other travel adventures with her husband and kids. When not behind the computer making a book, you might find her knitting, cooking, or trying to figure out how to get a printing press into her small backyard office.
