Creative and resourceful thinking are part of the process of creating imaginative illustration – the thinking time to get the ideas flowing It’s in the prep.
Illustration often offers a greater level of flexibility than stock photography. Sketch proposals can be generated quickly, then refined to get a very specific message across.
I often get asked to do artwork to very tight deadlines, mostly to get artwork to the printers and meet submission deadlines. You might think commissioning original illustration work on a quick turnaround might sound a little crazy, but it really depends on the brief.
With a tight deadline, preparation is everything. From the concept design to final piece, it’s easy to fall into certain traps.
I’ve been an illustrator and designer for as long as I can remember, Working with people all over the world, providing them with design ideas as unique as they are.
Good illustration design aids good business, providing the confidence to present a public image with integrity and verve, and also win new customers. It’s my passion to engage people with good design across all media, whether providing an illustration commission, animation or a cross branded print campaign with online marketing and website.
With over 18 years industry and design studio experience and a dedication to researching the latest design trends and web technology, it’s not just about creating a look and feel , but solving design problems.
