From idea to planning, from design up to the development of one or more editorial illustrations based on real briefs received by Poroli from clients during the last years.

Deadlines and timing, how to present ideas, finalization: the whole process of editorial illustration from the moment of the call of art director on duty, to the moment when images leave the computer to compete with the world through the pages of a magazine.
