Illustration is a is a visualisation such as a drawing, painting, photograph or other work of art that stresses subject more than form.


The aim of an illustration is to elucidate or decorate a story, poem or piece of textual information (such as a newspaper article), traditionally by providing a visual representation of something described in the text. Illustrations can be used to display a wide range of subject matter and serve a variety of functions for example giving faces to characters in a story


Displaying a number of examples of an item described in an academic textbook

Visualizing step-wise sets of instructions in a technical manual communicating subtle thematic tone in a narrative.

Linking brands to the ideas of human expression, individuality and creativity


Inspiring the viewer to feel emotion in such a way as to expand on the linguistic aspects of the narrative
