What do we do?
Closer&Closer is an artist representation agency based out Los Angeles. We represent world class Illustrators, Animators and Letterers who produce unforgettable visual experiences for brands, agencies and publishers on time and in budget.
What distinguishes you from other agencies?
We stay with projects from the inquiry to the due date to ensure that your project runs smoothly. Our team helps with the production and artist management so you can focus on creating something amazing together.
Why are you an amazing production agency?
We help teams define clear project outcomes, discuss and create clear expectations and map out the creative process from start to finish. We have developed systems and processes that we are constantly improving to ensure that your project runs as smoothly as possible.
So what does your process look like?
We have created processes (lots and lots of checklists and docs) for each phase of the process from inquiry to project kick off all the way through project milestones to the end of the project. We make sure that no project gets started without crucial project information. We set up project templates in Asana for you to collaborate with our artists as well as Dropbox folders and everything else to keep your project moving. We are always looking for ways to improve our system to serve you better so the longer you work with us, the better we will get at serving you.
What are the benefits of having representation and production under one roof?
Have you ever worked with a freelancer without a clear process? Without a strong process a project can quickly become a tangle of emails, missed due dates, reactive communication, frustration and unmet expectations. We believe that your projects deserve better than that. We give you all the perks of getting to work with freelancers with the support of an agency.
Our clients get access to work with the world's best illustrators, animators and letterers while benefitting from the project management and production services of a world class agency.
How much does it cost to hire an artist for a project?
That depends on a lot of factors such as the number of deliverables, the timeline, the usage you are looking for and a few other factors. We are pretty good at estimating projects within 24 hours once we have all the information. If you're interested in having us quote a project you can reach out to us here with your request and we'll get to work for you.
