Learn how to use illustration as a communication tool to creatively enhance a text

A course by Emma Hanquist

Finding your illustration specialty can be as challenging—and as rewarding—as finding your voice and style. Swedish designer Emma Hanquist has found hers in Editorial Illustration, a branch that revolves around creating idea-driven illustrations that complement and enhance a written piece. Through it, she has worked for every major news outlet and magazine in Sweden, as well as companies like Spotify and Airbnb.

In this course, Emma shows you ways to come up with illustration ideas by creating an efficient way to find inspiration and guides you through the process of creating an editorial illustration for a magazine, from the sketch to the presentation.
