WELCOME

Illustrators Switzerland is an online platform that aims to promote illustration in Switzerland and to increase its public visibility. The platform offers a large selection of portfolios by illustrators, ranging from experienced artists to new talents.
This platform is maintained and funded by the Illustrators Switzerland association.

Looking for an illustrator?
Use the search filters to quickly find the suitable illustrator for your needs. Or browse the names to get an overview of the portfolios. For an enquiry or booking, simply contact the respective illustrator directly.

This website contains examples of work, links to illustrators’ homepages, and direct contact information. The association is not an agency and takes no percentage on jobs commissioned.

Active membership is open to professional illustrators based in Switzerland. For detailed information on the admission process and membership, please refer to the association’s bylaws and regulations.

Terms of admission in a nutshell:

1. Applicants must submit the online application form, eight recent, representative works, and a link to their own homepage. At least six of the submitted works must be commissioned works no older than three years.

2. A five-piece jury appointed by the board of directors reviews the applications and decides on the admission of new members. The association reserves the right to reject applications.

3. Admissions are held twice a year in January and July. The application deadlines are 3 January and 3 July.

4. The applicant will be notified within 15 days after the application deadline. Applicants must give an email contact. (Please note that as a volunteer-driven organization, we don’t have the capacity to provide detailed feedback on your application.) Accepted applicants must agree to the association’s bylaws and regulations.

5. Individual members pay CHF 125.– per year (see the regulations for detailed prices). New members receive access to their personal online portfolio after paying the membership dues.
