More about editorial illustration
Editorial illustration is a fundamental category in commercial art. Every single day, around the world, talented illustrators bring life, colour and feeling to magazine, newspaper and online articles, highlighting the key points and enticing us to start reading.
Illustration can be crucial for successful magazine covers. On a crowded newsstand, a cover has two seconds to catch the eye and imagination of the viewer, getting them to pick it up and flick through the pages.
Often, an illustrator augments the design ethos of a publication, employed regularly and collaborating with the art director to develop a unique look and feel that chimes perfectly with reader expectations.
