Drawings and Illustrations

Simple drawings are often at the heart of good documentation. The use of relevant images breaks up the monotonous flow of text and it can provide speedy clarification of the text. Good illustrations are more multi-lingual than text - making translations easier and cheaper; and helping those to whom English is not their first language. Modern user-friendly documentation definitely has a mixture of words and pictures.

The production of relevant graphics for documentation is at the heart of our work. As technical authors, we make sure that the text we write and the basic illustrations we provide are truly complementary, and provide a genuine integrated benefit to the reader.

Well-drawn illustrations can also provide a very clear indication of the documentation having been well-planned; which reinforces the image of a high-quality product.

We can provide these types of illustrations:

  • Technical illustrations (mainly in 2D) for user, installation or service manuals
  • Flowcharts for business processes or corporate presentations
  • Simple assembly diagrams and plans
  • Illustrated parts catalogues
  • Explanatory graphics for new software and hardware systems
  • Photographic images
  • Video images shot using full-HD resolution equipment
We can often adapt or use any drawings you already have. Some of the illustrations you see at thumb-nail size are originated by us, whereas others have been created based on information imported from client CAD systems. We can work with your in-house CAD team to plan how best they can produce relevant 3D assembly drawings from your systems. We can usually handle illustrations from most commercially available packages - especially if you are able to produce DWG or PDF output formats.

The examples are shown here only at thumb-nail size. The original electronic images are vector-based graphics, and so can be scaled up to any size and still have smooth curves and shading.
