Health and Safety Illustration

Visual communication plays an important role in conveying ideas and data to employees and customers. The brain processes images faster and retains much more information when a message is delivered visually.


As the idiom goes: 'a picture paints a thousand words'...

Illustration showing workplace harmony with a group of employees getting along, as opposed to another group who are fighting.

Visual communication increases the aesthetics of any presentation, manual, leaflet, handbook, or poster - making information easier to process and understand.

Hazard Awareness

All work is bespoke and branded with your company colours, logo, specific PPE, plant and setting. This creates familiarity and helps the message to land.

Professional design service is available, with text and visual layout. Final high resolution artwork is supplied ready for your print or web requirements.
