I also produce a great deal of illustration for corporate communications and marketing departments. The portfolio work samples are all real jobs with real budgets and time-lines. I started as a traditionally trained designer and Illustrator and went digital - on the design side - about 20 years ago and - on the illustration side - about 14 years ago. As a result, I can produce traditional and modern styles of design and illustration with professional digital skills that are well beyond what you normally find in this field. I may not be able to match some of the hourly rates here, but I often work faster and can produce a high calibre level of work well beyond your expectations.
