Bologna Book Fair is just around the corner... I'm excited and terrified at the same time!!:)
Before taking off, I wanted to show some promotional material I made for the event.
First of all, my mini portfolios. I printed 45 of them and I'm going to leave those at editors and publishers during meetings and portfolio interviews.
I figured I wanted to give people something more that just a postcard, especially to publishers I see a good fit with.
Hopefully they're going to appreciate the extra effort and like the range of pictures!
On the first page, I wrote a brief introduction about myself and my work (previous clients, where I live, etc) together with a small photo of myself (they might remember my face in case we meet at the fair!).
On the last page I put some testimonials from previous clients. I figured is always good for publishers to know that, despite rumours, illustrators are actually reliable people!!
Also, I printed 200 hundreds postcards with two different designs, to leave behind when I will run out of mini portfolios.
And I'm going to use these also for the Illustrator wall, which will have a A3 poster with my bicycle bear logo and a cardboard pocket where I'll be able to put some postcards.
I'll publish a photo of this when it'll be all set up at the fair!
I printed everything with a European website called Pixartprinting. They were very fast and everything turned out really nicely, especially colours.
I'm definitely going to use these guys again!
Everything it's finally ready for the big event... if you want to follow my Bologna adventures I would suggest you to follow me on instagram, I predict I'll be publishing tons of pictures!! :D :D
I hope to see you there!!!
