Adding illustration is a fantastic way to add diversity and originality to a design. Rather than relying on photoshop or istock to try to find a result you are looking for, often the addition of a skilled and creative illustrator can give a design that unexpected, fresh visual aspect it needs. And with illustration there literally are no limits as to what can be achieved.
A number of graphic design projects might require the hand of an illustrator. David has a partner in crime for just these kinds of projects, his name is James Kent and the partnership of illustration mixed with design, colour, effects, retouching and production has netted these results.
