About NeuStudio

We Design Wonder

At NeuStudio we design children’s books and marketing materials for children’s books. We started our independent design studio and specialized in publishing because we love books. We met at Parsons School of Design, where David studied illustration, and I studied design. In our more than 20 years in business, we've worked for publishers large, small, and in-between.

We would love to work with you. —Susan Neuhaus susan@neustudio.com

“Susan and David pay attention to the small but important details and add an extra dimension to any publishing project. They are highly professional and a privilege to work with.”

David Neuhaus

David has always loved books. He has more than 30 years of experience providing publishing services for the picture book market. He’s worked on trade, mass market, licensing, and novelty titles.


Because David has both illustrated and designed picture books, he is an expert at helping illustrators develop their sketches into successful titles. He is particularly good at supporting new illustrators from sketches to finished picture book art.
