    I help companies and entrepreneurs overcome language barriers and connect with their target audience. In today's visual environment, I use professional and distinctive illustrations, infographics, and lettering pieces to help my clients stand out. Over the years, I have worked with companies of all sizes like Johnson & Johnson, HP and high-profile entrepreneurs. I specialise in the following: - Website/App Illustrations - Blog/Editorial Illustrations - Social Media Design - Packaging Design - Podcast/Album Covers - Infographics - Swag design As a self-taught visual artist with a marketing and business degree, my mind can easily navigate complex ideas and translate difficult concepts. My multidisciplinary background helps me come up with original concepts and out of the box approaches. 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.

I work with illustrations for children books and other projects such as magazines, websites, packaging, etc. CHILDRENS BOOKS I have completed over 30 childrens books and I have experience completing the whole process of creating a book, from story board to text setting and final book file ready to print. I work with Adobe Photoshop and InDesign to accomplish that. I can handle single book projects or a book series. OTHER PROJECTS I have completed illustrations for websites and other publications. I also have worked with boardgames and packaging. I’m able to deliver images in all common formats and sizes. I work mostly with raster images but can also do vector. Please check out my portfolio. If you have a project I can help with please reach out and let's talk about it. ABOUT ME I'm an illustrator and graphic designer from Brazil who now lives in Arizona. I was lucky enough to grow up moving around different countries. The rich cultures I experienced still influence and inspire my work. After studying graphic design and photography I found my true passion in illustrating and have been working as a freelancer since 2018. I work with illustrations for picture books, websites, and other publications. I also love to paint with watercolors and acrylics. ​I mainly use photoshop for my work, incorporating textures and patterns to give my illustrations an interesting and organic look. When I’m not working on a book you’ll find me experimenting with new recipes in the kitchen, learning something new, or working on a home improvement project.

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).

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.

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.
