We’ll take care of the admin, you focus on the art.
We’ve negotiated thousands of contracts, navigated the most ambitious briefs and handled endless kinds of clients — all while helping artists to reduce the risks they face and get commercial projects off the ground and over the finish line. If logistics and emails aren't your forté, Companion can take on as much client communication and negotiation as you need. It’s best to bring us on before your project even begins, but we’re here at any (or every) step of a job.
You’ll get guidance and advice from highly-trained and experienced producers who have worked across thousands of commercial art commissions.
Quotes, contracts, licensing, project management, logistics, conflict resolution and folio advice. We've seen it all and we're here to answer your questions.
Not all artists want full-time agency representation, but sometimes we all need a hand. Choose the service you want, when you want it.
Are you an illustrator, animator or maker of original artworks? We've worked with artists of all disciplines and understand you, your market and your clients.
With offices in the US, UK, and Australia, our producers cover a wide spectrum of markets and timezones, so we can work with you, on your time, wherever you are.
We know when to stay in our lane. If you need legal or specialist advice, we have a wide network of trusted professionals we’re more than happy to refer you to.
Doing your own financial negotiations can be uncomfortable. We’re here to give you an objective viewpoint and make sure you get paid fairly and that your time and work is valued appropriately.
Drop us a line and tell us about the project! Once we’re sure we can help, we’ll make it official with some paperwork and then get down to the nitty gritty. We’ll chat with you about the best way we can collaborate on the job, help you prepare presentations or decks, review any preliminary contracts and answer all your questions along the way.
Then comes the quote. We’ll work with your client to get all the details on scope, specs, timelines, licensing and everything they might not have considered (even the weird stuff) and get it all laid out in plain English so everyone is on the same page. If you’d like a legal eye to look over things, we have a wide network of trusted professionals we can get on board for an additional fee.
Once the job’s signed off, we’ll get you, the client and the brief set up with our project management tools so everything’s in easy reach. You’ll work directly with them on creative and we’ll be there to take care of the rest — keeping it to timeline, managing revisions, rebriefs, logistics, conflict mediation and anything else that pops up.
The client gets the final files, an invoice and a clear licensing agreement outlining exactly where and how they can and can’t use your work. They pay us directly and we then transfer your money to you minus our agreed fees. That’s your part done — simple.
Once your work’s out and about in the wild, we’ll hunt down samples and get the client’s permission for you to put them in your folio. People see them, people want you, rinse and repeat.
