What they say

  • Gavin Scott


”I think what I like most about Bright is the support and encouragement they give me. This was really important especially when I was starting out in the industry. And of course the lovely Lucie:) They will always do their utmost to solve any problems you have, and are a real mediator between the artist and the client, not just an agent finding you work.
The Bright approach is professional, personal and supportive.
I think they’ve made me feel looked after which has allowed me to concentrate on the work and worry less about the rest. They are always keeping up with trends in the industry and making suggestions where appropriate.”

“I feel fortunate to work in a job I have always dreamed about. Yes I work hard, but I am fortunate to have a real power engine behind me! Bright has enabled me to not only make my dreams come true but to live them. They are like family, so whether I need some advice and guidance, or just a friendly chat they are not far away. My most favourite thing about them is going to visit them, tea and cake is always supplied. :)”

“In the relatively short time I have been represented by Vicki, my work has taken leaps forward that could never have been achieved alone.

She and her agents have secured book contracts (most of which are my own texts) with publishers that before I would never have dreamt of working with.

Vicki has given her support and advice whenever it was needed, and has also given freely of her extremely valuable time for the pastoral care that is so important as a solitarily working freelance.

 

Illustrators, almost by definition, can be a somewhat ‘challenging’ group to work with, ( not me obviously ) and it is testament to her patience and belief in both myself and my work, and her incredible skills as an agent, that my career is set on the path that it currently is.”

“I love being with Bright. I joined Bright two years ago after twenty years in the illustration world, and they’ve proved that it is perfectly possible to teach an old dog new tricks!
Bright have helped invigorate my portfolio and introduce me to new clients, whilst also working with my existing publishers. And boy, do Bright have energy. There’s never a dull moment. And certainly never a moment without a job or three in the pipeline!”

“Joining Bright was an easy decision.  Vicki’s enthusiasm for my work made me feel confident and at ease.  From the very first day Bright brought me incredible opportunities.  I was introduced to publishers from the beginning and after introductions by Bright I was able to create relationships with my editors and designers on a one to one basis.  My career as an illustrator has sky-rocketed, and a large part of that has had to do with Bright’s encouragement and support (not to mention their contacts!).  In just one year I feel very established.  I understand so much more about publishing and the illustration industry.  Bright is a community, and I have met so many other wonderful illustrators through them.  Having had such a strong introduction into this industry it feels like a happy place, not competitive or ruthless, but supportive and giving.”

“I love being represented by Bright because if I need help with anything there is always someone at the end of the phone, as soon as is humanly possible

It’s always good to have an email back from my agent Lucie which makes me giggle, it gets me through my day!”

“Creativity and innovation is at Brights core and these qualities are evident in their portfolio of artists and their willingness to work with both clients and illustrators to develop a project for everyone’s benefit. None of this is at the expense of schedules, they consistently manage to deliver great work on time and on budget.  I would not hesitate to recommend working with their vibrant team and superb illustrators.”
