With research showing ever decreasing literacy

levels in UK adults, visual communication is

an increasingly important tool.   

Visual communication crosses language barriers

and can also save valuable time regarding training

or when urgent safety issues arise (with all of the

resulting consequences). Pictures have an instant

impact and can indeed “paint a thousand words”.

Illustrations are bespoke and branded for your

company, with specific PPE, Vehicles, Plant and

Equipment etc, to create identity and familiarity

for employees. This helps the safety message

to ‘land’.

My illustrations have been used in numerous ways including:

handbooks, leaflets, posters, storyboards, intranet, calendars, presentations, websites, social media platforms, training and

educational DVD’s and videos...

communicating the many aspects of Health and Safety, both environmental and behavioural.
