CEO Mr. An’ s definition of design is derived from his personal experience and the voices of others in the book industry. “Design is a powerful force for change and motivation, and it is everywhere.” said Mr. An “ l have a special place in my heart for children’s books. When we were young, they stirred our imagination and calmed us before we slept. Most of us can still remember many of the books from our childhood, and, if you’re like me, the front covers of most of them as well.
Browse our selection of some of the very best design-forward books for little ones: like The Rat-a-Tat Bear, the screen-print style of the characterful illustrations lends a gorgeously hand-done style to the book. The artwork is purposefully and skillfully naive, and a consistent color theme is used throughout each book to create a uniform, elegant design.
Our mission is to foster a universal passion for reading by partnering with authors to help create stories and communicate ideas that inform, entertain, and inspire, and to connect them with Chinese children. Our dedicated team of publishing professionals is committed to helping authors realize their very best works and to finding innovative ways of bringing stories and ideas to audiences worldwide. By leveraging our global reach and collaborating with multinational publishing houses, we aim to provide them with the greatest platform possible.
UTOP is committed to serving society with the books we publish and to reflecting our belief in the power of books to connect and change lives.
