Today’s businesses are expected to be creative, innovative and ever-evolving in everything they do, especially when it comes to branding and marketing. Anyone can get hold of a stock image, but with illustration the possibilities are endless, and a business will find it easier to be unique, original and engaging by harnessing the power of illustration.

  • As children we were raised on illustrated books. Illustration makes us feel nostalgic and like big kids again.
  • Illustration isn’t bound by the physics of reality and can bring your wildest imagination to life.
  • You can travel through time, visualising eras never captured by photography.
  • Characters add personality and help us remember brands more easily.
  • Illustrations break the stock library mold which are used by the masses and designed for generic or stereotypical uses.
  • Characters add personality and help us remember brands more easily.
  • They are timeless and be used again and again. They can be adapted and uplifted with new style trends.
  • Illustrations convey an idea which is difficult to express
  • It stands out from your competitors
  • Illustrated symbols and icons are a form of international communication.
  • Even a person that cannot read can be taught through pictures and imagery.
