Your ideas can be brought to life, information can be made more entertaining and understood, products that don't yet exist are on display, technical details can be shown, expensive photo shoots can be avoided...all with good illustration.
The Point-of-Purchase is where the customer is ready to buy. These concepts are placed right in the marketplace itself. This specialty uses creative design and (mostly), plastic polymers, various molding techniques and good placement that display aspects of the products to make the buying experience a lot more informative.
Sometimes your photographs are not quite there, it may be too expensive to re-shoot or maybe just impossible to do. A much better solution is to retouch the Photo itself.

Your web interface is your marketing effort. It is accessible by the world and can be the beginning of all of your print, branding and advertising efforts. It all starts with your interface. Here are some of my most favorite designs from the last 18 months or so. Designed by moi and expertly produced by the Orion Group in Sussex, Wi.
Printed items can be in many forms, all valuable to your marketing efforts. It could be as simple as a business card or as comprehensive as a presentation folder, brochure or magnetic calender. I can give you a quote as-well-as ideas.
An avatar to be an ambassador for you online, a character to be part of your brand or to represent a product or service. Maybe a caricature of each your staff to make a nicely done "about us" page on your website or publication.
It's your symbol, your logo, your colors, how you are identified and remembered at a glance. It effects your website, your print items, your message and even your companies culture. Consider a new look for your branding program or evolve your current symbol to something new.
Here is a selection of some of the projects I have been working on in the last year or so.

Hello, my name is Chris Aykroid
and I am a designer.
I have been passionate about graphics...since collecting stickers as a kid. I think it's always fascinating how form, shape and color come together to make a stunning, (or even not so much), visual image.
I have been creating logos, web and print graphics, displays and interfaces for the Point of Purchase, Sign, Print and Web business' for many different customers for over... well, lets just say that it's a little while.
I use the Adobe suite of products, Photoshop and Illustrator as well as Flash and Muse.
Is there any way I can help with the production of your product or service? I can work on-site or remotely.
Have a look over some of my work, I have selected some of my favorite projects to show...most fairly recent. If you have a question or want to get a hold of me for some other reason, use the contact form and I will get right back to you.
Thanks for taking a look!
