Custom Digital Illustration
I create original vector illustrations & drawings for digital, printing & publishing uses. Many of my illustration projects have been used for stencils, logo designs, large format installations, printing projects, children’s books, infographic designs & small format icons for websites or Apps.
Many of my illustrations are intended to be extremely simplified, using the minimum amount of shapes & sharp corners to aide in print production (when used for vinyl cutting for example).
Recent Illustration Projects
One of my early jobs was to design children’s tattoo stencils, which were drawn as vector illustrations so they could be produced as vinyl cut stencils. Each drawing had to be small enough for a children’s arm, which meant the drawings had to be very simple yet recognisable in small format.
The drawings also had to have no sharp corners, which assisted the cutting machine in production. And each shape had to be self-contained, with no overlapping objects – this is also essential for vinyl cutting, as the blade will follow the outside line of each shape.

Illustration & Branding
For a number of logo design projects, I am required to draw certain elements of a logo, whether it is a simple star, or an elaborate floral pattern. The majority of logo designs are required to be supplied as EPS / vector graphics, so they will be suitable for any printing usage, small or large format, or vinyl printing if necessary.
One of my main clients produce large format installations for various companies and institutions around the UK. I provide the artwork for a number of these installations, which often require infographics designs to present information in a simple & fun way.
The infographics illustration designs will be created using Adobe Illustrator as Vector / EPS graphics, as they will be used in very large format in most cases.
How I work
I charge a reasonable hourly rate for custom design services, but always provide a detailed quote and plan of action before undertaking any work. I provide design previews of my work before asking for any payments, so there are no disputes about the finished product.
For digital illustration projects, when the finished design is agreed upon, I can supply the artwork in several formats and sizes for all digital uses and print production.
