Graphic Design Jobs in Illustration


Illustrators conceptualize and create illustrations that represent an idea or a story through two-dimensional or three-dimensional images. Illustrators may do drawings for printed materials such as books, magazines, and other publications, or for commercial products such as textiles, packaging, wrapping paper, greeting cards, calendars, stationary, and more. Illustrators use many different mediums, from pencil and paint, to digital formatting, to prepare and create their illustrations. As an illustrator, you will consult with clients in order to best determine what illustrations will best meet the story they are trying to tell, or what message they are trying to communicate.
