More about decorative illustration
When decorative illustration is mentioned, packaging is the area that first springs to mind – elaborate filigree patterns splayed across boxes, bags, labels, wrappings and so forth.
However, decorative illustrations are used in a surprisingly wide array of contexts. From jackets and endpapers to embellishments within the text, book designers relish using decorative illustration to elevate publishing projects. Adult colouring and jigsaw puzzles are other areas were patterns and adornment are popular, as well as stationery products, homeware and textiles.
Art Deco and classic-inspired decorative illustration are often filled with natural elements, applied creatively to deepen the visual interest around a product or brand.
