Finding An Illustrator For Hire

Here’s a quick overview of how to hire an illustrator using the platform:

  1. Post up a job, detailing the nature of your project
  2. Wait for illustrators to pitch on your brief

Tips For Writing Your Job Brief

Here’s an interesting statistic:

60% of pitches for jobs online have been abandoned due to the application’s length or complexity

Although Twine manually vets all pitches that a client receives, it’s really important to make sure your brief is clear and concise to maximize the volume of high-quality pitches you receive.

To maximize your chances of receiving high-quality pitches, make sure to include the following information within your job brief:

  • Who you are

  • References of work you like
  • Target audience

Frequently Asked Questions
Why hire an illustrator?

Here’s the thing:

As tempting as it might be to use stock art…

Your customers will spot it in an instant.

And do you know what they’ll think?

They’ll think you’ve taken shortcuts with your product.

You need an illustrator to produce original work if you want to showcase the time, effort and energy you’ve put into your work.

If that doesn’t convince you, here are three further advantages of commissioning original illustration work:

Retain creative autonomy

Working with stock art can force you to compromise on your product in order to make the artwork fit. Hiring a freelancer lets you tailor the art to your product.

Stand out from your competitors

90% of information processed by the brain is visual. An original, eye-catching illustration is an excellent way of setting yourself apart from the competition.

Keep your costs down

Top-quality stock art is expensive, with many providers locking you into an extensive subscription plan. An original illustration will not only be far-superior in quality, but often more cost-effective than stock art.

What are the advantages of hiring a freelance illustrator over an agency?

Great question!

Here are the top three advantages of hiring a freelance illustrator over an agency:

Price point

With office space, employee benefits and set working hours, agencies have high overheads factored into their costs. Hiring a freelancer cuts out the middleman and provides you with a top-quality result at an effective price point.

Experience

Top-notch illustrators will often start their careers at an agency before moving on to freelance work. This makes freelancers some of the most experienced & knowledgeable professionals in the game.

Specialism

Most agencies target a broad market. Instead, many freelancers will specialize in a particular niche of illustration, such as children’s books or album artwork. This allows you to choose a professional who lives and breathes your particular project.

Twine is one of the best freelance sites for illustrators. Post a job now and hire an artist online in a matter of hours. You can also take a look at freelance illustrator’s portfolios on the platform to see what our creatives have to offer.
