State of the art - IMAGEZOO, a directional new company selling affordable royalty-free illustration, is helping to change the way art is viewed and sold. It proves that restrictive barriers traditionally associated with commercial illustration, and the art industry in general---exclusivity and expense---are not a prerequisite to buying fine quality artwork.
IMAGEZOOÂs growing team of award-winning commercial artists offer thousands of quality digital royalty-free illustrations available for immediate download on its website (http://www.imagezoo.com) at prices affordable to small and medium sized businesses. It provides personalized service that is not available elsewhere because it is not just an internet company, it is owned by a full-scale commercial design firm, based in Canada, which sells to Australia, Japan, Brazil, UK, Europe, USA and Africa.
Founder Stephanie Carter, an internationally successful artist and award-winning illustration marketer, recognized art directorsÂ need for simplicity and cost-savings when on deadline to complete artwork for advertising, new media, promotional materials, corporate documents and publishing.
IMAGEZOO targets customerÂs needs. Carter states, "IMAGEZOO was founded in response to a market opportunity. There is currently not a leader specializing in royalty free illustration. Other companies sell royalty free illustration products but they also sell photography, stock illustration, audio and footage products. IMAGEZOO seeks to narrow the focus and become the only "specialist" in the marketplace and, since weÂre targeted, we can offer faster, more efficient service to our clients."
IMAGEZOO encourages artistic license. Carter explains, "We seek to provide an authentic environment for artists to sell their images with full recognition of their individuality and unique approach. This is reflected in the artist biography pages on the IMAGEZOO web site. We look for untapped talent to keep fresh and interesting, working closely with over 60 illustrators from across the globe to create collections that are visually striking and conceptually rich. We have watched the market closely and developed a keen eye for content that communicates well." Carter, who has over 15 years illustration and marketing experience, is also instructor at two respected Canadian art colleges and devotes considerable hours to mentoring junior artists and lecturing.
IMAGEZOO royalty-free single images, priced as low as $59.95 (US), feature themes from business and technology to healthcare and education. They can be used as often as required, without restrictions associated with rights-managed artwork including royalties or license fees. Sample images and collections for comp-ing purposes provide a "try before you buy" option, free on-call assistance helps find the right image fast, and clients may work directly with artists for custom work.
The company is expanding rapidly. It plans to distribute the IMAGEZOO brand world wide, with its 50 collections currently available on ten sites, in the process of distributing to over 100 sites. It will also be launching another ten collections this spring.
