How can I find an artist for hire?
Is it better to use a freelance artist-for-hire or to hire a permanent employee?
Most businesses use freelance illustrators for their projects because they do not need illustration work to be done every day. However, some creative fields may require full-time illustrators. In that case, it would make sense to hire someone as a permanent employee rather than a freelancer.
What are some important tips to hire an illustrator?
- Ask to see the illustrator's portfolio. An illustration is entirely visual, so you will discover very quickly whether or not you like the artist's style by viewing some of their work.
- Negotiate with the illustrator to get an agreeable rate. If you're working with a freelancer, their prices aren't necessarily fixed and they will likely offer a better price if they feel that your project is a good opportunity for them to showcase their skills.
- Before the project or job begins, be very clear about your expectations.
