Hireillo joins us as a Supporter for BDF 2024

We’re excited to announce that Hireillo, an independent service for professional illustrators founded by creative director Darren Di Lieto, returns as a supporter for this year’s festival.

And we’re back! Hireillo is once again thrilled to support BDF and to connect with art directors, designers, and illustrators like you.

Hireillo (hy-uhr-il-oh) is an independent service for professional illustrators. Established in 2005 as Hire an Illustrator (HAI) by creative director Darren Di Lieto, it evolved into Hireillo in 2021. Our members are versatile, operating in various sectors of the illustration industry, from advertising and branding to publishing and editorial. Their diverse skills span everything from animation to creating large-scale murals. What sets us apart is our commitment to bridging the gap between clients and creatives, helping them find each other effortlessly.

The Hireillo team, Darren and Morgan Di Lieto, are passionate about illustration, which drives everything we do. Whether we are promoting our members or advising them on their portfolios, pricing, and contracts, we are dedicated to ensuring their success and that the art directors and designers we work with find what they’re looking for.

Whether you want to hire an illustrator via a FREE client account or have us at your back as a freelance illustrator, from seasoned pros to those just starting out, all are welcome. Join Hireillo.
