When illustrating for a client I focus on making simplistic, accurate work that fulfills the look desired and requested. Along with neatness and the ability to follow directions, communication is crucial. Before diving head first into an assignment, talking with the client about what they want in their design is essential in order to work efficiently for both of us. Even if a client does not have a solid idea on what they want, it is important to me to discuss and shape those ideas in order to create a design that fits their criteria.
