[quote style=”1″ author=”TODD BUCK / MEDICAL ILLUSTRATOR”]The Medical Illustration Sourcebook goes to medical art buyers who do more than click the “like” button. They hire. Based on my return on investment with the Sourcebook, I will continue to advertise in it. One phone call from a company you may have never heard of can change your work flow trajectory for years. I say this as I am working on a large project from a company I initially connected with via the Sourcebook.[/quote]

[quote style=”1″ author=”MAGGIE MACHADO / FREELANCE CREATIVE”]AtEdge is the only reference I keep on my desk. I have four of the small editions sitting in front of me right now.[/quote]

[quote style=”1″ author=”PIPER SMITH / LINDGREN & SMITH“]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.[/quote]

[quote style=”1″ author=”CAROLYN MCCLAIN / DEPUTY ART DIRECTOR / CRAIN’S NEW YORK BUSINESS“]I find it easier to find an artist using print compared to online. Usually I find artists in the Directory and then look them up online to get more information on them.[/quote]

[quote style=”1″ author=”ETHAN DAVID KENT / EXECUTIVE CREATIVE DIRECTOR / MCGARRY BOWEN“]The Directory is a good collection of talent all in one place. The fewer places I can visit to find the talent I need, the better.[/quote]

[quote style=”1″ author=”AMITA STAROSIELSKI / FREELANCE ART PRODUCER”]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.[/quote]

[quote style=”1″ author=”LAURA LAUBE / SENIOR ART BUYER / DRAFTFCB“]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.[/quote]

[quote style=”1″ author=”MORGAN BRAMLET / CREATIVE DIRECTOR / AMERICAN COLLEGE OF CARDIOLOGY“]The Directory of Illustration is an extremely valuable resource for finding the right artist for our projects. It allows me to browse art quickly, tag for later reference and then share it with our team.[/quote]

[quote style=”1″ author=”BRANDON SCHARR / SENIOR GRAPHIC DESIGNER / WRAY WARD“]They’ve basically become a collectible around here.[/quote]

[quote style=”1″ author=”TRACI DABERKO / ILLUSTRATOR”]I’ve been advertising in the Directory of Illustration since 2008. Now I have an impressive and extensive client list that continues to grow due to the exposure from the book and website. Advertising with the Directory always pays for itself, and then some. It’s such valuable resource for the industry and I look forward to the next big illustration project.[/quote]
