I hope you’ll join us for this fun adventure! You’ll love our all-new assignments.
P. S. We’ve heard from artists who tell us that they’ve gotten work just by the exposure they’ve received from entering the GTS.
Often, an illustration can tell the story better than a photograph. Here are 5 reasons why to hire an illustrator. I’ve included a few recent examples by our artists.
1. Sometimes an art director wants some serious pop on the page, like this piece by Lisa DeJohn that was commissioned by the Boston Globe Magazine.
2. Illustration is perfect for maps. It can give the feel of the place through color and icons.
3. Everyone always reads a cartoon or comic strip, and these can illustrate a concept like nothing else.
4. Stunning typographic illustrations are a gorgeous way to design a page.
5. Take a typical scene like mealtime. Now ask an illustrator to make it visual appealing. Illustration adds personality and appeals to your demographic.
Hope you enjoyed the show. Lookin’ for some great art? Contact us to license, buy or commission art for your fabulous project.
