What we do

For creatives, by creatives

Bright was set up differently. We do more than represent artists and authors. We care for the people as well as the work.

By nurturing our talent, their work has flourished around the world: as books, animations, designs, gifts, textiles and more. We love seeing people fulfil their potential, and helping them on that journey.

How we work

Where creativity meets responsibility

Bright began in children’s publishing, and as we’ve grown, our work has too. New platforms, channels, markets and audiences.

We now work across: Publishing, Illustration, Greetings & Gifts, Film & TV, and Licensing. It gives the work we create more commercial potential, and gives our artists more opportunities.

As a global business, it’s also more important than ever to reflect the diversity in society, from children’s books to advertising campaigns. As we discover and develop new artists, we take this role seriously.

Children’s Publishing

Where it all began. We represent authors and illustrators, from debut to established. They create picture books, fiction and non-fiction which regularly top bestseller lists and win awards around the world.

Greetings & Gift

Choose designs to license for cards, stationery and gift wrap, or bring your vision to life with a direct commission. We regularly brief artists to create new, on-trend work, so there’s always something different to see. We’ve also developed bespoke software that keeps the process smooth at every step.

We've discovered and developed artists who'll meet your needs, whether in advertising, editorial, packaging, homeware, animation... License the work or commission something new. Our agents are a small team who'll help you create big impact. Take a look at portfolios.

TV & Films

The way we enjoy our favourite characters is changing all the time. That’s why Bright has developed exciting relationships across a range of media channels, including major streamers, Hollywood studios, broadcasters, independent producers and up-and-coming creative production houses.

We work to ensure that our authors and illustrators stay involved as their books come to life on screen. We also support them throughout the process, from negotiating the deal, through development and into production. If you’ve an opportunity, we’d love to hear from you.

Our Story

A bit about us (if you must)

Did you know that Vicki, our founder, was the first illustrators’ agent to be nominated for literary agent of the year? And was nominated a second time in 2021? We were also the first illustration agency to attend China’s book fairs, and have a hard brick office in America (not just a satellite agent).

We even have a full in-house marketing department and developed our own sector-specific software to keep processes simple. We also want our artists to feel part of a community, and our annual Christmas and Summer parties are just two of the ways we do that.

And did you know we co-founded the Alligators Mouth Award for illustrated early fiction?
