Ann-Kirsten Retiring

Published by Steph - 22nd April 2021

Ann-Kirsten Retiring

Congratulations to Ann-Kirsten who retires this month after 15 years at Bikinilists... Her hard work and attention to detail has been integral to the success of the company.

As we grew and expanded from our humble beginnings in 2004 when photo projects were shot on film and archives were still housed in wooden boxes.

There are many photographers, illustrators, agents and stock libraries who will be grateful for all the help and encouragement she has given them with marketing promotions over the years.

She's outlasted four UK Prime Ministers, three US Presidents and seen the launch of MySpace, Facebook, Skype, Instagram, Slack, Whatsapp, Tik Tok and more. We wish her every success for the future.

Bon Voyage Ann-Kirsten.
From all at BikiniLists

What our subscribers need more than ever is for us to be right on top of things ready for the recovery... We're on it.

Our research team hasn't missed a beat. We've been set up for remote working for the last six weeks, checking and updating changes as soon as we find them.

Earlier this month, we made free lists and other items available to freelancers working in isolation and we've started a "Working From Home Survey" to gather experiences, ideas and tips to share next month.

We expect the number of changes/updates to increase in the coming weeks and we're putting plans in place to make sure we keep up with those as much as we can.

This is uncharted territory for us all and it would be great to hear your insights. Get in touch - we're ready to help.

Illustration in Isolation

Published by Ross - 24th Mar 2020

Illustration in Isolation

We spoke to illustrator Paul Collicutt about concerns for creatives during this time and what Bikinilists can do to help.

Bikinilists: How concerned are you about the possibility of an extended period working in isolation?

Paul: Working from home is not a problem in itself as I work part time from home anyway and am well set up. The problem I think will be working from home with the rest of the family in isolation too. We have 2 kids and they do need attention. I think we'll all have to be disciplined.

We know it's tough out there... have you noticed a tightening of the purse strings or uncertainty from any regular or potential clients?

Yes. I have lost clients in Hong Kong and in the UK people are just a lot more uncertain. I know of at least one magazine that has just pulled all its budgets back for the next 3 months and no illustrations are being commissioned at all for 3 months.

What are your plans for networking and promoting in the coming weeks?

Not really a plan as such but rather a determination to carry on. There must be areas that are doing well.

Do you feel that you have all the tools you need to stay productive and keep business moving during this period?

I have all the tools to stay productive but I'm worried about getting business in. Right now I have no jobs lined up at all and to be honest I am really struggling with making contacts that result in jobs.

How do you think we at BikiniLists could help freelancers like yourself to power through this tricky situation?

Maybe any insights you have could be shared... suggestions about campaigns would work well... maybe something like the advent gifts you gave out at Christmas, contacts from another sector... publishing... that would be very useful.

Watch this space.
