Hire Adobe Illustrator Designers

Illustrators are artists hired to create illustrations, a picture or a still drawing, for use in ads, books, magazines, packaging, greeting cards, newspapers and mediums of digital media. An artist who specializes in Adobe Illustrator – a graphic driven software used primarily for creating vector graphics – is known as an Adobe Illustrator designer.

The Work of an Adobe Illustrator Designer

An Adobe Illustrator designer conceptualizes and creates original images and artwork for print publications and digital media. The most popular kinds of illustrators include comic-book illustrators, fashion illustrators and technical illustrators – illustrators who prepare detailed drawings to help people understand complex scientific or technical information. 

Illustrators can be hired to either execute an entire project or even for smaller tasks, such as designing ads, logos or marketing collaterals, specifically. For example, there are professionals who specialize in Adobe Illustrator logo design as well as banner design.

Though most of the illustrators are proficient in Adobe Illustrator, there are some who work exclusively using it, and they offer online freelance services, working across varied industries and projects.

If you are looking to hire Adobe Illustrator designers, make sure they can:

  • Create original information graphics using Adobe Illustrator.
  • Translate researched information into visually stimulating and intellectually engaging typography, illustration and infographics.
  • Research and organize content for graphics.
  • Collaborate with writers, editors and others to identify and understand artwork needs.
  • Technical illustrators should have a good understanding and passion towards science and technology.

Benefits of a Freelance Adobe Illustrator Designer

Due to competition in the industry, freelance illustrators take a number of specialist courses to develop their skills in areas such as technical, book and sequential illustration. Freelance illustrators maintain a more direct relationship with the clients and work in tandem with them.
