Make your website and product stand out. Unique digital illustrations can catch the eye of potential clients, expanding your reach to new markets.
Encourage customers to share your subtle ads. Beautiful designs are loved by everyone and are happily shared by people across various social media platforms.
Bring attention to your solutions with infographics. Present data and key facts about your products with amazing designs prepared by digital illustrators.
Link all your products and services with a unified design. Eye-catching illustrations are the best way to establish a brand that everyone will remember.
The power of the image can be seen in every area of our life. TV and movies are more popular than books. Writing blogs got niched, adding photos on Instagram not. On Facebook, photos generate much more traffic than simple text posts.
To get ahead of your competition, you also have to invest in promoting your product with the right design. The more tailored and unique it is, the more eye-catching it ends up being, bringing you more customers — sometimes from groups or markets you haven’t thought about targeting yet.
How to get such content? One of your best bets is to hire a digital illustrator. Such an expert can provide you with:
But how to find truly amazing digital illustrators and hire them? And what skills and background they should have to truly thrive in the role? We explain all the ins and outs of the hiring process in our piece below.
Unlike in the case of developers, data scientists, or other very technical roles, the stack of a digital illustrator is much more flexible. Of course, knowledge of Adobe tools and how to use a drawing tablet are musts but besides these, such designers have much more freedom than some of their peers.
There are, however, skills that they should possess to truly thrive in the business environment. These skills include:
In a creative role like a digital illustrator, the right mindset matters even more than tech skills. With the right, creative mindset, the person will grow either way and always strive for getting better in what they do.
When it comes to digital illustrators, the most beneficial soft skills for your business are…
Formal design education might give quite a boost to your potential digital illustrator — it often gives background and professional knowledge on how to work with business products and target them to specific customers. You'll most likely get candidates with diplomas in general fine arts, graphic and digital design, and product design.
However, you should also not automatically rule out people without a diploma. There are a number of people who haven’t attended art university because of various life circumstances but were involved in creating illustrations and other designs since early childhood. Many of them start pursuing their dreams by investing time in self-learning. In the world of digital design, where talent and imagination matter a lot, this is often enough to make one stand out on the market.
What matters more than formal education is the previous professional experience of your candidate. You want to hire a digital illustrator who has previously proved themselves in a business environment. In the end, if other companies trusted your candidate, they must have had good reasons to do so. The more business projects your candidate has in their portfolio, the better for you, as it assures you that they are reliable and provide quality work.
What other things you should consider when reviewing a portfolio of a freelance digital illustrator?
The last on our list — but definitely not the least important part of the hiring review process. Finding a digital illustrator who really fits your company can bring you truly amazing results, often provided also faster than you might imagine. Consider the following two areas of a company fit…
Beautiful and unique digital illustrations can bring the attention of new customers to your products — but if you want to keep them with you, you’ll also need to invest in an amazingly performing technical backbone.
