"What I love most about being an illustrator is being able to bring my most wild imaginings into my work on a daily basis. How many jobs make that possible?"

- Jessica Fortner
Illustrator

"This industry is more than just a job. A healthy creative industry facilitates people to keeping doing what they’re passionate about and also creates a community that leads, inspires and also support others."

-Jinah Lee
Art Director

"Working for television and movies, you're able to showcase your work to a large family audience. It is always rewarding to hear from a parent how much your work has positively influenced their children."

-Katherine Lim
Storyboard Artist

"What I love most about my job is that I get to help entrepreneurs, small businesses, and innovative companies figure out how to build awareness and grow their sales. We feel like we have a real impact on these businesses every day—and that's really satisfying."

-Erin Bury
Managing Director

"There's no other industry that better pairs problem-solving with adding beauty into the world. I get to answer the question "how do we make this tell a story AND look good while doing it?" and there's nothing better, to me, than that."

-Andrew Kolb
Illustrator

"I’m never bored. On the surface, that sounds like a weird thing to love about your job, but it’s important. When you’re bored, you feel discouraged, depressed and uninspired. That’s why it’s great to wake up every morning and go to a job that’s always challenging you with fresh projects — it keeps you on your toes."

- Jordan Finlayson
Copywriter

"The more I learned about advertising—its culture, people, and influence—the more I knew it was for me."

-Brian Howlett
Creative Director
