Why hire a freelance illustrator?

Your brand’s story is unique and deserves to be communicated in an authentic way. A key benefit of hiring a freelance illustrator is their ability to help solve problems, communicate messages and visualise complex ideas. By including illustration within product design can help add a human touch to the experience and often make your product / service easier to use. An illustrator will work with you to create a style and visual language that supports your brand’s message and unique personality. They will provide the imagery you need, for the media you request, in the style and format you desire. They can also help generate ideas, if you’re unsure where to start.

What does a freelance illustrator do?

An illustrator creates two-dimensional images for various companies and industries. This can include, fashion design, magazines, web sites, technical designs, advertising, children’s books and medical manuals.

  • Liaising with editors, authors or designers
  • Negotiating contracts and timescales
  • Undertaking relevant research and generating ideas
  • Drawing rough sketches for approval
