put all your eggs in the same basket by leaving all the hard work to the famous person, and you will deeply regret it if she happen to leave the company. helping the newbys grow is really important for the future.
Certainly, helping newbies grow is important for future. But giving all important roles to newbies despite having someone well known in the team? Moreover, just recently and recommended by the company 'Face' Kou Yagami just before she leave? Then people would be extremely disappointed when they heard the news. They would be expecting more from Aoba after Kou's 'stunt'. It's good in a way that people would be lowering their expectation for the game
and lets be honest you don't really remember the name of the character designer or art designer. you'll rememeber studio X produced a great game and maybe the game's director name but often no more than that.
What you said is true but you are forgetting in the manga Kou was the face of Eagle Jump before she left. And she introduce Aoba to the people during the introduction of her last project PECO. People would immediately reconize Aoba's name in the project.
That's why they were going to hire a famous illustrators for the key visual of PECO if Kou rejected. For example, you would immediately hype when you heard Hideo Kojima was making a new game if you are a fan of Metal Gear, and making you want to buy the game.
