Custom illustration (or ‘studio work’) is about creating hand drawn visuals custom to your needs. I first meet or speak with you to discuss your desired outcome, after which I create hand drawn illustrations in my studio, either small scale (usually for reports, blog posts) or large scale murals (for events, training). Sometimes both! All illustrations are hand drawn, either digitally or on large paper/flipcharts.
I love the process of extracting and distilling the information you give me to create visuals that are engaging, lively and easy to digest. Take a look at the examples below (more coming soon).
Part of our aims with the SDS Road Testers project was to provide accessible information about Self Directed Support to disabled people and also to share learning far and wise. Emer worked with us on our Champions project and by understanding the issues involved she produced some bespoke graphics for GDA which underline key messages about choice and control. This was also evidenced in the Mural for the @My Choices: I Did it My Way@ event in March 2015 and the powerful images created for GDA were an excellent aide memoire to key messages and learning from the project.
Some instances where you may be looking for custom illustration:
Our team at the Scottish Government required a fast and efficient turnaround on some graphics work at a reasonable price. Emer worked with us to produce interesting work, and was patient and professional even when our specification and timeframes changed. She provided an accessible end product which told a great story. Thanks Emer!
