Top 30 Illustration Companies: Studios & Agencies for Visual Solutions

Updated: April 29, 2022

We know choosing the right illustration company for your next creative project or overall visual brand identity may be a bit overwhelming. There are so many good illustration companies from across the globe that we admit it – it took us quite a while to cut down the selection to 30.

Now, when we speak about illustration companies, we have to make it clear that there are two types of them: studios and agencies.

  • Illustration studios are usually run by a small team of illustrators or even one illustrator who communicates with you, creates your visual materials and delivers.
  • Illustration agencies, on the other hand, represent selected artists from across the globe who work for them on commissions. These agencies handle the communication with you but transfer your project to an illustrator who works for them and whose skills fit your project needs.
