We’re excited to announce that Adam Koon is the winner of our annual drawing for a FREE marketing package in the Directory of Illustration No. 36 for 2019-20!

Adam Koon’s name was drawn randomly from over 600 entrants, comprised of professional artists, illustrators, and animators. The Directory of Illustration marketing package awarded to Adam is valued at $2,895 USD and includes:

  • 100-image portfolio on directoryofillustration.com, the world’s leading illustration portfolio site.
  • Full page ad in the Directory of Illustration No. 36 print edition, released to art directors all over the USA in January 2020.

A self-described “New York based designer with illustrative ideas,” Adam creates bold, graphic illustrations and designs lively characters that jump right off the page. His impressive client list includes Shake Shack, KFC, Porano Pasta, Budweiser, Better Life, and more.

Here’s what Adam had to say about winning our drawing:

“I was excited to hear that I would be in a book that meant so much to me. Seeing all the illustrators I admire and getting to be in the same publication as them was really exciting to hear. I have always gone to the Directory of Illustration as a place to see all the top illustrators and where the field is as a whole.”

Elizabeth Owen, President of the Directory of Illustration, also expressed her enthusiasm for Adam Koon:

“I was so excited when I pulled Adam’s name from the hat and looked at his website. His work pops right off the screen. We look forward to promoting him to the Directory of Illustration audience.”
