Project Learning: Commissioning illustration
Talk | YCN Library — For our members

Sunshine's Simon Holmes and illustrator Eve Lloyd-Knight will draw on their experiences of working together to spotlight the best practices for commissioning illustration.

Illustration is a seductive medium, which offers a powerful, emotive way to communicate. Practically, it can be more straightforward to organise than photography, and offers an abundance of talent with which to work. However, it can also be a difficult medium to get right: finding the right artist, convincing clients of their relevance, nailing the briefing process, giving clear feedback and then applying it across a variety of formats. They're all pitfalls on the way to a perfect ending.

As part of a series of events that seeks to draw learnings from past projects and successful partnerships, we've invited Simon Holmes, Head of Art at creative agency Sunshine, and illustrator Eve Lloyd-Knight to join us in the Library on the evening of 20th September. Simon and Eve have both worked on a number of big illustrative projects, and collaborated on the recently completed Lifetime Movies campaign. They'll share examples of their work with us – explaining what went well, what didn't, and what they'd do differently next time – and use them to open up conversation with those who come along.

If you work with illustration as part of your role, would like to do so more, or are otherwise curious, we'd love to have you along. Drop us a line below to save yourself a seat.
