Get the most out of your Membership

There’s are so many benefits to make use of as an AOI member. The more you use us, the more value you’ll get from your membership while adding to your professional career. The website is jam packed with useful resources – and we’ve picked out some suggestions of how to to get stuck in.

Firstly, if you’re a brand-new member, a physical welcome pack of goodies is heading to you in the post. Give this a few weeks to arrive and maybe a little longer if you’re based outside the UK. It’s well worth the wait!

As part of your membership you’ll also receive a complimentary subscription to Varoom Magazine. Leave this to us – you don’t need to do anything – just than let us know if you change address.

Here are a few tips on how to start using your AOI membership:

  • Have you added a Folio to your package? If so, get started on uploading 20 of your strongest Illustrations to the site. Make sure you add a title, description and relevant tags onto each image so they can be seen by potential commissioners.
  • If you signed up for an Illustrator + Folio membership, you’re instantly eligible for a free Digital 10-image portfolio on Directory of Illustration. We send a list of all new and renewing members to DOI at the start of every month – they’ll get in touch directly with instructions on how to set up your free Portfolio.


The AOI would like to make resources accessible to all members. If you would like an alternative format please ask.
