Planet was born out of a desire to provide the best illustration service in the UK.
How it all began
Originally trading under Adrian Cartwright freelance illustrator in 1990. Adrian started the business on 25th September and with the help of the Enterprise Allowance scheme, Adrian set off to make a name for himself as an illustrator. While studying at Falmouth School of Art and Design, he realised that having a flexible folio and skillset that allowed use of multiple mediums was the way to go. This proved later on to be avery important skill, and an asset that has established the business into it’s third decade.
Experience and more
Experience as an illustrator is priceless, so having a keen eye and eager to learn and experiment has given Adrian knowledge that he passes onto his projects. It’s not just about drawing a great illustration, it’s about understanding his customer and the brief. Drawing on skills learnt over the years to help Adrian to create a great illustration for his customers.
