It's believed that a whopping 85% of images downloaded from the internet are either unlicensed or used illegally. That’s a huge number, but you may still be asking yourself — “So what?

If you've used Pickit Free Images recently, you might have noticed some new collections created by Pickit Community photographers Rosstek and M. Koppang.
This week we decided to mix things up a little and invite an illustrator to collaborate on a collection. Frida "FridaRit" Panoussis is a Graphic Recorder and live illustrator who earns a living summarizing and visualizing meetings and events.

Every day, people all over the world are pitching ideas, putting together proposals and presenting their work. Often, countless hours go to compiling the most compelling ideas, insights, and suggested improvements, while little attention is paid to presentation. Whether its pressing deadlines or a lack of experience, people fail to package their work, so it makes it past the front door.
But in an age of images, choosing the right visual elements to complement your content is crucial.
