Thanks to her participation in the Directory of Illustration program, Ethisphere found and commissioned Allison Bruns to illustrate a series about prominent Fortune 500 CEO’s for a high-end publication called the Executive Briefing.

Allison worked alongside Art Director Cory Skaaren and created 7 portraits which accompanied the writings of high-profile executives in the final publication.

Allison says,

The Directory put me in front a national audience and moved me out of a low paying local market to some bigger jobs. I now have two big companies added to my client list. One of which is National Geographic Publishing Company, and the other Ethisphere!  And these two jobs paid for over two years of advertising!! I could not be happier!
