Not a Hobby: Business Masterclass for Illustrators with AOI

An all-new masterclass to help illustrators make it professionally.

When, Where

The Association of Illustrators is back for an all-new masterclass to help you tackle the often daunting business of building a professional illustration career.

This session will include an overview of your illustration business; career vision, SWOT, risks and money matters. The AOI will look at your products and services, market research, branding and self-promotion.

Tackling areas that are often overwhelming (and a bit boring!) with a combination of case studies, industry insight and Q&As, this session will set you up with the tools you need to build your business plan, boost your career confidence and outline your next steps.

If you want to achieve the kind of projects, clients, terms, fees and stability you deserve, this masterclass is for you.

About the tutors:

The Association of Illustrators is the professional body for illustration in the UK. Established in 1973, the AOI champions illustrators and the illustration industry with education, promotion and campaigning.

Please note that latecomers may not be admitted.
