Make an impact Visuals play a significant role in communications. Illustrations in particular can be used for impact or to simplify otherwise complex concepts. They draw attention, capture ideas, teach, and entertain.
5 ways 1. Stand out, be creative
Photos can be beautiful and very effective but sometimes the perfect image cannot be found or taken to represent a complex concept. Illustrated art is a great alternative to photography because it can support abstract messages. It also adds character to your culture and offers a unique look and feel to your materials.
The Illustration Revival The digital photography age relegated illustration to a lost art. However, the increased appetite for infographics and motion graphics has revived the importance of—and the need for—illustrators and their craft. Accurate has seen a significant surge in requests for illustrated art. You can use it to quickly convey complex data or ideas, making your communications more effective and noticeable. If you are a business, association or government trying to effectively convey your message, at some point you will need custom illustration to say what a photograph or words cannot. If you need inspiration, turn to Accurate and our Big Book of Illustration: Volume 2.

Yawn, another chart! Not if your data is presented as an infographic. Your audience wants you to prove your numbers. The lure of the data-driven infographic is that it makes it easier to achieve this goal because your facts are easier to understand at a glance.
Some concepts are difficult to express succinctly in words. A picture is worth a 1,000 words and illustration is a great way to represent complex concepts that just can’t be described in text.
Motion graphics, video, parallax HTML 5 and Prezi have empowered the illustrator to bring to life the once static world that caged us in print. It allows you to engage your audience in a creative experience or explain complex ideas or processes with animated infographics.
Illustrations and images, are used to teach or guide. It’s one of the reasons we love IKEA, their assembleit-yourself instructions are full of simple diagrams. It connects process to end results in the minds eye better than words alone.
Original and interesting, creative illustrations make a communication piece more unique.
Put the emphasis on understanding your measurable facts.
Infographics: Information-driven Demonstrate a complex, descriptive concept or process.
Animation: With the surge in video, the use of motion graphics has become an attractive option—especially for short, fun character pieces or explainer videos.
How-to illustrations: Use ‘how-to’ diagrams to teach how to do something or how something works.
