I have been an illustrator with IllustrationX since they started [I was with The Garden studio before this when Harry Lyon-Smith first began to work for them].
Up until this point I had had a number of disastrous relationships with agents run by cowboys - a very expensive and upsetting process. I have complete faith in IllustrationX and its brilliant team. They have always proven honest, efficient, friendly and dealt with clients in a business-like manner.
They are always one step ahead of the game when it comes to marketing and promotion. I haven't seen a better web site which is always being looked at and updated.
Un-like my past agents, I have always been paid [and on time] They communicate regularly with newsletters and promotions on different artists as well as having social events with their illustrators.
I have worked frequently for Die Illustratoren in Germany and also for Stacey in the US. Again, I can't speak more highly of them. Stacey is remarkably efficient and friendly always following through any opportunities that present themselves.

The agents at IllustrationX were an absolute delight to work with. Stacey was quick to respond and flexible with deadlines and budget restrictions. Definitely one of my first stops when looking to assign an illustration project!

IllustrationX have a really great range of talent, the website is simple and it’s easy to find exactly what I’m looking for and they are always a pleasure to work with.
Trine Johnson - Producer, Red Bee 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 upholds the agency’s leading position and I couldn’t have found a better home.

This is my first year of representation with IllustrationX and hope there are many more years to come. The whole team are highly professional and also extremely friendly, which is a great bonus. They are a pleasure to work with as they are swift with communication, 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 be amongst the best illustrators.

I find working with IllustrationX very easy and the agenting team supply a very quick & professional service. They represent a large selection of good quality illustrators with a wide selection of styles. The website is easy to use & search. I enjoy being kept up to date with their promotional emails & Scrapbook notebooks which give me a sense of the illustrator's personality and help me gauge if they are the right person for a particular project.

IllustrationX picked me up as a raw talent and have helped instill 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 am honored 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, Victoria always passionate and professional about giving advice, and the finance team punctual with payments!

I have had the pleasure of working with IllustrationX for just over a year 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
Being represented by IllustrationX 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.
Chris Gilleard @ illustration
Thanks for the illustrations for our project. Both our client and ourselves like them very much. The working process has been very smooth and all achieved within our budget. And special thanks to Tianyin who, through this project, has demonstrated Illustration Ltd’s unique capability of bridging up Chinese creativity with Western interpretation and execution
Liza Law, JWT Shanghai
Dear Rosie and IllustrationX, thank you again for the fantastic illustrations you have done for our project.
Ryan Lynch - Managing Partner, Beardwood&co - New York
Thanks Illustration team for a terrific evening at Scrapbook Live - a great way to get a sense of the agency and what it's about. The dynamism of the agents and diversity of the art was very apparent. I've always liked the fact that Illustration Ltd represent a select list of artists whose styles are very broad. This was well showcased. It was a pleasure to meet some of your artists too. To know that the individuals you represent are so energetic, professional and personable really is a huge draw when thinking of commissioning. Above all, we took away a great sense of energy, openness and optimism from artists & agents. Great feelings to have at the moment.
Emily Lamm, Walker Books
Just to let you know that you have been extremely helpful for the last 8 months of working on this project. I am actually very impressed with how you handled everything along the way including the contract issues that we had etc.. You were always very responsive, reliable, very sharp and helpful. I went into this project without knowing much about this and was pleasantly surprised with how you were able manage it. Working with an artist across the world who does not speak English or know what I need sounds really challenging. You were a huge part of this thing going really smooth. I hope your boss really appreciates you working for this company :)
Yana Hoch, Self Publisher USA
IllustrationX have always been a great support to my endeavours as an illustrator, their tireless interest in finding new clients and the best new illustrators means i'm always gifted with good company. And with clients coming from all over the world, new markets and opportunities are always around corner.
