What We Do


Bright Illustration focuses on smart, inventive illustration and concepts for projects, encompassing everything from fiction and non-fiction cover art; high-end product packaging; brand identity and logos; advertorials; fashion illustration to promotional materials. We are always extending the creative scope of Bright’s diversely-talented artists to meet the needs of our growing client list.

Committed to identifying the perfect artist, or artists, to execute a client’s brief perceptively, sensitively and with a compelling flair, our agents are always on hand to make tailored recommendations. A lightbox facility is also available while browsing our online portfolios in order that targeted selections can be created, downloaded and shared.

At every stage of the commissioning process, clients can rely on Bright Illustration’s conscientious approach to communication, project management and expertise in developing outstanding, inspirational artwork.
