    How it works

    Our team of phone agents call and speak directly with professionals working in ad agencies, design departments and publishers to identify those who are responsible for commissioning freelance creatives.

    We also ask a few quick questions to find out which types of creative content they are most interested in, so we can tailor the content of each Contact book to be more relevant to the individual that receives it.

    Using this information we have compiled a distribution list of over 3000 professional prospects of guaranteed quality to receive tailored editions of our printed book and many thousands more who opt for digital updates.

    To give us the content we need, each book contributor will submit either single or double page artwork separately for each of the 3 sections:

    1) Main Artwork Section
    This is seen by all recipients so should feature your latest, greatest and favorite artwork

    2) Targeted front-section
    A selection of artwork focusing on one of 4 industry segments: Advertising, Design, Publishing or New-Media

    3) Additional supplement
    Specialist artwork samples relevant to 1 of 6 industry sectors: Transport/Travel, Children/Education, Architecture/Events, Fashion/Retail, Science/Technology, Food/Drink.


    - Images required at 100%-110% of true size as 300dpi flat tiff files in standard Adobe CMYK.
