Creative digital illustration expertise here at Heckford

Creative digital illustration is an extremely versatile tool in marketing and advertising and we’re proud of the incredibly talented in-house team we’ve built at Heckford. Whether it’s creating a memorable character for a particular identity or campaign or detailing a more abstract concept, our team work closely with you to develop a unique style and colour palette that complements your branding.

Make your products stand out

Illustration also allows complex stories to be told clearly, lending consistency to all elements of a campaign. Having complete control over what characters do and say and how scenes are developed lets us tell the story we want to at just the right pace. Once an digital illustration is completed it can also be animated and used effectively in social marketing, explainer videos and advertising campaigns.

How we work

Most digital illustrations begin life as a hand drawn sketch that details the main content and captures the style and spirit of the overall piece. We’ll share that with you as we go and get your feedback to make sure that we’ve captured everything in the brief. After that the image is usually – but not always – scanned onto the computer to draw over the initial sketch, adding colour, movement, shading and style to build up the initial sketch into the finished digital illustration.
