Our Clients give our Artists and Agents an average rating of {ave}%*

Go

Every year we invite our clients to rate the service provided by our agents and the quality of our illustrators and animators, after a commission. We ask how likely they are to recommend IllustrationX and AnimationX to others.

Since we started asking, our clients have consistently given us an average rating of over 96%.* While we’re blushing a bit, we’re also delighted to know that we’re living up to our promise of caring professionalism. Our agents and artists put the very best of themselves into every single commission because we really care about the outcome for you.

We also listen carefully to the feedback of the very small number of clients who were not 100% satisfied, tweaking our approach, training and policies wherever necessary. We want every client to be happy.

But don’t take our word for it - check out some of the testimonials we receive from our clients (and artists) every week. Thank you to everyone who took part and contributed feedback.

We have no hesitation in recommending this team of creative professionals to anyone seeking high calibre logo and design work. Nadia was so helpful and thorough right from the get go. She was also prompt with her replies and would always respond with a great attitude. In the end, my brother and I ended up with a logo that is even better than we ever imagined. Something we are excited and very proud of. Thank you Matthew, Nadia and IllustrationX!
Steve & John Pace, Gemma Joe's
Quincy was absolutely amazing! Everyone loved his work and he was so easy to work with. He's a very cool artist and an even cooler person -- would 100% recommend him for any events. Karen from Illustration X made the process even easier!
Irina Goncharuk, Inworld
Working with Liam has been an absolute pleasure. From briefing to final execution, everything went smoothly and we are extremely pleased with the results.
Alessandro Perottoni - Senior Brand Manager, Sipsmith London
We just received our May issue that Tony illustrated for us, and it's just FABULOUS! Getting rave reviews all around the office. Thank you so much! It will probably be my best cover ever & I have Tony to thank for that. I look forward to working with both IllustrationX and AnimationX & Tony again in the future
Regine M. Lombardo - Art Director, MM&M New York
As an illustrator for the past 25 years, life has always been up and down especially on the payments side of things. Since joining "IllustrationX and AnimationX" 6 years ago, I have had a steady stream of work, sometimes an overwhelming amount, even having to turn down some jobs. Most of my work comes from London, Germany and the States where the entire team is friendly, approachable and efficient and I never have cause to doubt that they are getting the best possible payment on each commission. The payment system is fair and I can finally organise my life well as I always get paid at the same time each month. Well done "IllustrationX and AnimationX" for finally making my working life an organised one!

Love working with your agency. Each time it’s been a lovely and seamless experience.
Lidia Moore, Women's Wear Daily
Working with IllustrationX and AnimationX just gets better and better - and I've been with them for over 20 years so I should know! The team themselves are the perfect balance of professionalism and friendliness and their experience shines through in every aspect of working with them. They work extremely hard at making sure that both clients and illustrators are happy. I feel my own work and creativity have been able to grow and flourish thanks to the many high-calibre clients and varied briefs they have secured for me. They keep me consistently very busy with lovely work - sometimes too much! But they definitely take the headache out of it with their excellent support and working practices. I am proud to be a part of the catalogue of talented, pleasant and enthusiastic artists they attract. For me, Illustration is more than just an agency, it's a connection to the best (and nicest!) people in the industry, right around the world.

This is a great step forward in Barnardos. The feedback has been so positive, from parents, from staff. We could not have done it without your gorgeous work and illustrations. They add the fun, the vibrancy and we just want to thank you from the bottom of our hearts

I have had the pleasure of working with IllustrationX and AnimationX for several years now, and it's been a joy! Always friendly and professional, they have provided me with great work and clientele, from the UK and USA especially. I feel as though I'm in good hands!
Lauren Mortimer @ illustration
Such a great assortment of illustrators from all over the world! And a great team of reps right across the globe! ‘IllustrationX’ is truly international. The website is always fresh and informative. I really like the Scrapbooks. They are wonderful. For me, as an illustrator in the ‘team’ I can really focus on being creative and leave all the other business in their safe hands. From Stacey in the US to Amary in China it has always been a great delight to work with ‘IllustrationX’.
Christopher Corr @ illustration
Very easy communication, delighted with the final illustration and all the updates along the way!
Sam Scarpa
IllustrationX has an illustrator for every job. The interaction between client, rep and artist is always easy and professional. My rep, Karen, has always gone above and beyond to help me whenever I bring a project to her.
Gigi Ortwein, SagaCity Media
Having often heard of difficult stories from many illustrators and artists on how their careers were partly formed by bad experiences with various agencies, I feel very lucky and privileged that Consulting Agent Sarah Beetson immediately saw the potential in my work from a handful of images and to have IllustrationX's encouragement and support to confidently develop as a freelance artist. The agency is unique in that they have a personal approach to each artist, providing great guidance whilst also being very professional and fair in liaising with clients on our behalf. The international team’s expertise and innovative manner uphold the agency’s leading position and I couldn’t have found a better home.
Montana Forbes @ illustration
I joined IllustrationX and AnimationX in 2011 and couldn’t be happier. All of the agents and staff are fantastic and great to work with. They’ve given me the opportunity to work with clients all over the world, most of which I don’t think I would have had the chance to on my own. I’m very honored to be a member of the IllustrationX family and look forward to working with them in the years to come.
Joseph McDermott @ illustration
IllustrationX and AnimationX have a fantastic team of agents working around the world. They are all great to work with, very trustworthy and enthusiastic. I put my complete trust in them to look after the job. I have been a part of this large family of illustrators for a few years, and feel like my client base has gone from strength to strength. Illustration has given me the chance to work with all ends of the illustration world and given me lots of experience in many different areas! Fantastic Team! Thank you IllustrationX
Hannah Davies @ illustration
I have grown with the agency for over 12yrs and it has to be said the whole experience has been a professional and pleasurable one. From the early days when I first secured representation, they were very tolerant as they nurtured me through the commission process and were always fighting my corner. This patience, personable and professional approach has been maintained throughout my time with the agency. I have always found them reliable, honest and enthusiastic about each commission I have been involved with. And at the risk of sounding a little gorgonzola – the team has become more of a family than just a mere artist/agent relationship.
Stuart Holmes @ illustration
We had the first exhibition of the Nippon paint underground artworks in Beijing last week & the feedback was great from the audience. Thanks, we will have the same event in Guangzhou and Shanghai as well, we would love to invite you to be there if you are able.
Lily Jin, Saatchi & Saatchi Shanghai
I just wanted to say a big "Thank you" to you for your gorgeous newsletters! I just love them! This is finally a newsletter you don’t want to miss or just overlook! It is so nice to get some further information about the illustrators’ and how they work, what inspires them and so on. Such a nice "distraction" in daily business! =) I get to know many "new" artists I didn’t know or had in mind so far - and of course the free poster is just awesome!!!! This is so nice to get a free "sample" of some wonderful illustrations. I found a place at home for one or the other, or they just decorate my office a little bit
Magdalena Ignatowski - Art Buyer, OgilvyOne Frankfurt

Alessandro Ricci , Wonder Burger
IllustrationX makes it easy. I had never worked with an agency before and they helped me pick an option that perfectly suited my needs.
Jake Prince, Elevos
I've known IllustrationX and AnimationX for many years now and have always found them to be highly professional and passionate about delivering the best possible results, both from a creative and cost point of view. Each of the different agents that I've met are simply delightful, keen to help and to get the best out of their illustrators ensuring they deliver on brief and on time, every time. The range of illustrators/artists they represent are the best in their field, and IllustrationX and AnimationX pride themselves on the wide variety of styles on offer. I find the website particularly useful when searching for just the right person and style to present on to my clients. Knowing that a can trust IllustrationX and AnimationX to support me in what I need while ensuring that their artists are treated fairly and encouraged to do their best work time and again, makes it very easy to recommend them as the best illustration agency around. Great people, great artist, great results.
Ian Lanksbury - Design Director, Radley Yeldar London
I am honoured to be represented by such honest and professional agents! I joined IllustrationX over a year ago and thanks to them I have already received many great commissions for worldwide clients. The team constantly promote your work and communicate with you to improve your portfolio and visibility. Thanks to their effort and tireless enthusiasm I feel confident that my portfolio will continually attract a wide range of clients! I couldn't ask for a better team of agents: Juliette is remarkably efficient, passionate and professional about giving advice, and the finance team is punctual with payments!

We absolutely love IllustrationX. There's an artist for every conceivable project, and they're all amazing at what they do. We've never been let down by anyone on their roster. I couldn't recommend this agency enough for the easy commissioning process, excellent communication, and of course the terrific work of their artists.

The whole team is highly professional and extremely friendly, which is a great bonus. They are a pleasure to work with as they are swift with communication, and provide informative briefs and regular promotional support. I have already worked on some dream commissions that I couldn't have achieved without the team. It's an honour to be represented by IllustrationX and AnimationX and be amongst the best illustrators.
Chrissy Lau @ illustration
IllustrationX and AnimationX picked me up as a raw talent and have helped instil a deep understanding of the visual communication industry and client needs whilst leaving my creativity unbridled. A friendlier, more accommodating and professional agency you'll struggle to find. I'm thrilled to be signed to the best in the world.

I wanted to email you both together now the illustrations are done and I've sent the book to print just to say thank you! It was lovely working with you both and made the commissioning process so straightforward. And of course, we're all thrilled with the illustrations and can't wait to see them in the final book. They really are wonderful pieces. (I don't know if you get inundated with such things, but do let me know if you'd like a copy of the book and

Being represented by IllustrationX and AnimationX has been truly invaluable to me and my dream of being an Illustrator. As a graduate, they have opened doors for me, so early in my career, that I couldn't possibly have reached without their help and knowledge of the industry. The whole team, all over the world, are professional and friendly in equal measure and have made my transition from student to working professional not only a possibility but a pleasure.
