Illustration Services for Devon

What is illustration?

There are many explanations as to what illustration is, even with an illustration, it is not always clear! Possibly the most common answers are 'the drawings in a children's picture book' or 'the comics we used to read as kids'. These are both true but, Illustration is so much a bigger a thing and seen in a huge variety of places.

Consider your daily routine, you probably start the day by taking a shower. Next time you have a shower, take a look at the shower gel bottle in your hand. It has probably been illustrated with vibrant yet harmonious coloured mint leaves, mangos or other natural elements. When you make a coffee and pour some cereal, have a look at the containers, the packaging will more than likely have been illustrated, this has moved a long way since the Tony tiger on the Kellogg's Frosted Flakes.

When you leave home and are on your way to work, you will probably pass a number of advertising boards, some will be illustrated! If you are lucky enough to not be going to work that day, you may be heading off on a holiday. When you get on the plane and sit down next to the person you don't wish to sit next to, pick up the pre-flight safety demonstrations no one ever takes any notice of, yes, you guessed it, they are illustrated. This is just an example of where illustration is used and can be seen on a daily basis. Illustration is truly diverse, it is used in the fashion industry, animations and the instruction manual from Ikea.
