IllustratorHub was built from necessity. As our platform, Black Illustrations began to grow, we received countless inquiries for custom illustration work. This resulted in an influx of inquiries we were not able to fulfill. So, to help navigate these leads, companies looking for diverse illustrators and creatives we collectively decided to develop a platform for business owners to find black talent.
In order to build the database, we conducted research on black illustrator platforms on the web. Most of them lacked the details, contact info and visual portfolio needed for companies to find solid talent quickly.
While prototyping the website, we made it required for every profile to showcase enough visual data for business owners to easily find talent via a visual portfolio.
Our team takes the time to properly review illustrators and add their portfolio and work to our database. The process is simple, but effective for finding the most amazing talent from around the world.
