[quote style=”1″ author=”STANISE RICHARDSON / ART DIRECTOR / DISNEY’S YELLOW SHOES CREATIVE GROUP“]The directoryofillustration.com website is my ‘go to’ source for researching styles and finding illustrators for our projects.[/quote]

[quote style=”1″ author=”JACKIE HEDA, CMI / MEDICAL & SCIENTIFIC ILLUSTRATION”]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‘.[/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=”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=”KAREN ARNESON / ART BUYER LEAD, IMAGE SERVICES / HOUGHTON MIFFLIN HARCOURT PUBLISHING“]The Directory of Illustration is so helpful and valuable. I love the printed book and the online equally. Your site is so inclusive and user-friendly — probably the #1 “go to” site for me.[/quote]

[quote style=”1″ author=”BELINDA LOPEZ STURTEVANT / ART PRODUCER / RAZORFISH“]AtEdge is a great way to review photographers when I am on a search for upcoming projects.[/quote]

[quote style=”1″ author=”JANE WHITNEY, B.Sc. A.A.M. / MEDICAL & SCIENTIFIC ILLUSTRATOR”]I know for certain that the Sourcebook and web site have directed new clients to me, and those connections have more than paid for the cost of the advertising. These new clients are not ones I would have thought to contact on my own, and I know that they are familiar with my work and are looking for my style before they call me.[/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=”SARA CLARK / SENIOR ART PRODUCER / TBWA\MEDIA ARTS LAB“]AtEdge books are on my desk all the time. You can flip through them quickly and know that all the talent will be strong. The books are all over the agency and our creatives hold on to them for a long time.[/quote]

[quote style=”1″ author=”AARON SMITH / GROUP CREATIVE DIRECTOR / TBC“]Enjoy being able to reference a wide array of talent all from one site.[/quote]
