Testimonials

The Directory is one of the first places I turn when developing a project’s visual style. I do a lot of digital work, but I still prefer the tactile nature of the Directory — flipping through pages, it’s easy to share or tag images for future reference.

MIKE DAITCH / GROUP CREATIVE DIRECTOR / DIGITAS

The directoryofillustration.com website is my ‘go to’ source for researching styles and finding illustrators for our projects.

STANISE RICHARDSON / ART DIRECTOR / DISNEY'S YELLOW SHOES CREATIVE GROUP

I think it represents high-end photography so I look there to keep myself familiar with the names… as I do reading the design and photography magazines. The photographers’ efforts to market seem to count most.

MARGI DENTON / PRESIDENT / DENTON DESIGN ASSOCIATES

I have had an ad in the Sourcebook since the second edition. So for me, the track record speaks for itself, and for my business and the ever evolving marketplace, choosing not to run an ad in the MISB is not an option!

The value of having a portfolio in front of a wide audience of qualified buyers in the US and beyond, can not be over stated. The Sourcebook is not only a printed directory that is used by many of my clients, it is a broad based marketing tool that includes online marketing through medillsb.com. In addition to your printed ad in the Sourcebook, each subscriber can upload 50 images/animations per page as their online portfolio on medillsb.com.

When I ask contacts “how did you find me?”, the response is most often ‘through the online resources of the Sourcebook‘.

JACKIE HEDA, CMI / MEDICAL & SCIENTIFIC ILLUSTRATION

AtEdge is a great way to review photographers when I am on a search for upcoming projects.

BELINDA LOPEZ STURTEVANT / ART PRODUCER / RAZORFISH

We use only custom illustration and I am a big fan of the Directory of Illustration. I love it!

SUSAN BELL / MANAGER, GLOBAL CREATIVE SERVICES / PFIZER CONSUMER HEALTHCARE

Enjoy being able to reference a wide array of talent all from one site.

AARON SMITH / GROUP CREATIVE DIRECTOR / TBC

I look at it (AtEdge) almost every time I start a project to see if there is anyone in the book that I am not familiar with.

AMITA STAROSIELSKI / FREELANCE ART PRODUCER

AtEdge is an invaluable reference that showcases top-flight photographers. It’s a great source for some of the most provocative and thought-provoking work from which to draw on for upcoming photo assignments. It is a pure, honest accounting of the photographer’s creative eye – the style, the passion, the message.

LAURA LAUBE / SENIOR ART BUYER / DRAFTFCB

The Directory of Illustration is a very cost-effective way for us to promote our artists. We get great work from our presence in the book and a lot of referral traffic from DirectoryofIllustration.com. The staff is wonderful to work with and the web portfolio is easy to maintain. We love the Directory program.
