What our customers are saying


At a Glance: Illustration

A picture is worth a thousand words, making illustrators the key to success across an array of projects—children’s books, technical manuals, logos, and T-shirt designs. Illustrators will provide the imagery you need for the media you request in the style and format you desire, and even help you brainstorm visuals if you find yourself lacking that creative spark.
Illustrators are as diverse in skills as the types of projects that require illustrations. Some specialize in traditional media—watercolor, oil paint, pencil, ink, or pastels—while others are especially adept in computer illustration, using programs such as Adobe Illustrator. Their styles can range from minimal and whimsical to highly detailed and photorealistic. The professional illustrators on Upwork have produced everything from magazine illustrations and architectural renderings to character designs for mobile games and tattoo art. They can guide you through the creative process and work to your specifications, all to bring your project to life with beautiful graphics.
