    Hi, I help companies and entrepreneurs overcome language barriers and connect with their audience through professional and distinctive illustrations, infographics, and lettering pieces. During my 10-year career, I have worked with companies of all sizes from small family businesses to industry giants like Johnson & Johnson, Mars and Pepsico and I treat every project with professionalism and enthusiasm. I specialise in the following: - Website/App Illustrations - Blog/Editorial Illustrations - Social Media Design - Packaging Design - Podcast/Album Covers - Infographics - Swag design What working with me looks like: - I can work without too much guidance and will deliver work that needs minimal revisions. - I am very well organised and will never miss a deadline. - I love exchanging ideas and receiving constructive feedback. I am not the kind of designer that stubbornly sticks to her ideas, but a flexible one, who likes to be challenged. Sounds like a match made in heaven? I'd love to learn more about your business and see how we can reach and delight your audience.

    Hi. I’m an artist, illustrator, and designer with a focus on children’s book art. While I have studied a wide variety of styles and adjust depending on the needs of the project, my personal style is designed to convey magic, vibrancy, and warmth, and to evoke timelessness and nostalgia. Storytelling is my inspiration. I go above and beyond to ensure every picture is just what the story wants to say. I got my first experiences as an illustrator in college, working for the school paper. As one of two paid artists on the desk I made around 5 images a week, communicating with student reporters and the editors to create cover images for various stories. It was more educational than any art class, personally as well as professionally. I love art for its own sake, but I found that nothing is more rewarding than leaving someone with work they’re genuinely delighted with. Since graduating with an art degree in May 2021, I’ve worked as a freelance illustrator. I was contacted by an independent author through a professor I’d studied with and had the privilege to illustrate her children’s book, which she is currently in the process of self-publishing. Another highlight has been working with an entrepreneur selling CBD tinctures. The concept was to create inviting artworks that communicate comfort and calm, something less medicinal than the traditional product. To advance my abilities, I am also currently pursuing a certificate in graphic design. Thank you so much for your interest, and please don’t hesitate to reach out!

How to Hire Top Editorial Illustrators

From infographics to weekly cartoons, editorial illustrators aim to make content more fun and engaging for readers.

So how do you hire editorial illustrators? What follows are some tips for finding top editorial illustrators on Upwork.

How to shortlist editorial illustration professionals

As you’re browsing available editorial illustration consultants, it can be helpful to develop a shortlist of the professionals you may want to interview. You can screen profiles on criteria such as:

  • Aesthetic fit. You want an editorial illustrator who understands the art direction your brand is trying to use.
  • Project experience. Screen candidate profiles for specific skills and experience (e.g., turning charts, graphs, and stats into infographics).
  • Feedback. Check reviews from past clients for glowing testimonials or red flags that can tell you what it’s like to work with a particular editorial illustrator.

How to write an effective editorial illustration job post

With a clear picture of your ideal editorial illustrator in mind, it’s time to write that job post. Although you don’t need a full job description as you would when hiring an employee, aim to provide enough detail for a freelancer to know if they’re the right fit for the project.

An effective editorial illustration job post should include:

  • Scope of work: From magazine covers to article graphics, list all the deliverables you’ll need.
  • Project length: Your job post should indicate whether this is a smaller or larger project.
  • Background: If you prefer experience with certain industries or design tools, mention this here.
  • Budget: Set a budget and note your preference for hourly rates vs. fixed-price contracts.

EDITORIAL ILLUSTRATORS FAQs

What is editorial illustration? 

Editorial illustration is the practice of creating artwork for publications such as newspapers and magazines.

Here’s a quick overview of the skills you should look for in editorial illustration professionals:

  • Editorial illustration
  • Vector illustration
  • Cartooning
  • Graphic design tools (e.g., Adobe Illustrator, GIMP, Inkscape)

Why do you want to hire editorial illustrators?

The trick to finding top editorial illustrators is to identify your needs. Is your goal to create eye-popping visuals for a magazine spread? Or do you need a cartoonist to contribute satirical cartoons to your newspaper? The cost of your project will depend largely on your scope of work and the specific skills needed to bring your project to life.

How much does it cost to hire an editorial illustrator?

Rates can vary due to many factors, including expertise and experience, location, and market conditions.

  • An experienced editorial illustrator may command higher fees but also work faster, have more-specialized areas of expertise, and deliver higher-quality work.
  • A freelancer who is still in the process of building a client base may price their editorial illustrations more competitively.

Which one is right for you will depend on the specifics of your project.

How long should you contract an editorial illustrator to complete your project?

As difficult as it is to estimate how long you will need an editorial illustrator, budgeting time is very important to keeping your project on track.

Be prepared to budget more time for more-demanding editorial illustration projects. For example, designing art for a single magazine spread will typically take less time than transforming data into a series of infographics.

What are the steps involved to hire editorial illustrators?

Here’s how to hire editorial illustration consultants in four simple steps:

  1. Identify your project needs, whether it’s designing a book cover or drawing a satirical cartoon.
  2. Define the scope of work and write a detailed job post. Be specific about deliverables (e.g., contribute a weekly cartoon for the Sunday newspaper).
  3. Review proposals and shortlist potential editorial illustrators for unique skills needed to bring your project to life (e.g., creating a mosaic out of thousands of photos).
  4. Interview editorial illustration talent to gauge whether they’re the right fit for your project. Here are some sample interview questions.
