Employee Handbook Illustrations

We needed to review our Employee Handbook at Paystack and I was asked to create a series of illustrations and icons for it. In total I created 23 illustrations and icons respectively.

Since there was a lot of illustrations I had to complete in a very limited time, I didn’t spend much time on concept development. What I did was decide on the icon relevant for each Handbook page then expanded that into an illustration.

At first I wanted to create the illustrations with thin lines. I had already settled on this but spent quite a while on the colours for the lines. Then I had the thought to thicken the lines and emphasize their character. Good decision.

Shot 3: I was trying out shadows here, in hindsight I don't know why I thought this looked so bad.
Shot 4: I had figured out the background here, but was still unsatified with the illustration.
