The word Illustrations means a platform where one can converse ideas of any kind whether literal or abstract in terms of range, topics or style. Thus overall look, mood, and feel of designs can be transferred according to the client’s requirements. Following mentioned are key skills for generating illustration skills:-
Understand the composition at the early stage-It’s entirely important to understand composition at the early stage as it reduces hassles down the line. In order to reduce future confusions, it’s most important to tiny sections of overall composition whenever handmade illustrations are included in it. This not only saves time and energy but also speed up design works by forming quick thumbnail for future designs. Not only it’s essential to understand idea and composition from the beginning but also equally required to provide this sketch work so as to avoid uncertainty between illustrator and art director.
Selection of right style –During the commencement of your project work, it’s advisable to understand and select the proper style of your illustration. Test illustrator’s previous work in order to judge their frame of mind and potential level. And if you have a fresh idea in mind always speak frankly with them so as to execute concept in proper route.JAWA
Set a comprehensive brief –Many times it’s essential to give illustrator fair chances of proving their worth can give striking results which go beyond our imagination. A clear and brief about the compositions or designs always prove to be essential for illustrator’s understanding. Equally important is never to become so over controlling or put undue limitation which makes illustrator cramped with his style.
References matters at every stage-Visual mood boards and references can provide an ingenious guide during the initial planning of concept and composition. Such information helps in guiding the further course of action with required directions. The type of references and visual mood boards helps illustrators understanding about certain shape and form of elements, color palette, and background pattern.
Let there be brainstorming-Make sure to keep your brief with openness so that illustrator can explore it at the early stage and later on also. Some crucial concepts like idea generation, logo formation etc can be developed for your clients and further be processed in innovative directions. Being a designer knows very well about other side of table and maintaining healthy and professional relationship with illustrator helps in finding best solution for your clients
