Illustrations for those with great imagination
Fraser Ross are a literary agency who help aspiring authors publish their books. Their old website had illustrations that were no longer usable but they liked the welcoming impressions that illustrations give.
It was important that the illustrations reflected the approachable nature of the brand while staying relevant to authors from different genres and backgrounds. The illustrations also help guide the reader through the sometimes text heavy site and needed to feel interesting yet light.
The positive connotations with the first letter of a story book was the perfect way to combine the anticipation of getting published with the professional content. Each illustration can be taken apart to convey different messages which makes the illustrations very flexible.
It was important to strike a balance between nostalgia, helpful content and the real business aspects of getting a book published.
