• Portraits - An illustrated rendition of someone’s face or bust. This can sometimes be more interesting and impactful than an actual photograph!
  • Cartoon Art Style - A cartoon style is more playful and minimal, and less realistic. The result is something simple but visually appealing and easy to digest.
  • Geometric Art Style - Looking for something less cartoony and more… well… artsy? Try requesting a geometric style, with its random compositions and looser lines and shapes. The abstract look works well in editorial layouts.
  • Realistic Art Style - Realism means more true-to-life rendering. The colors, shadows, and composition mimic real-world situations. The result is more photographic and natural.
  • Caricatures - Caricatures are a sort of cartoon. A subject’s most striking characteristics (like huge eyes or a big hairdo) are exaggerated, creating a comical effect.
  • Photo to Vector Conversion - A photograph is in raster format, which means it’s not infinitely scalable to larger sizes. A vector image, on the other hand, can scale cleanly to any size at all. You can have your photos vectorized. The degree of realism may vary depending on the style you’re aiming for.
  • Mascot or Character Creation with Specific Poses - Just like a logo, a mascot symbolizes your brand. But unlike logos, mascots are exclusively designed to personify or humanize, a brand. Mascots are usually cartoon-style illustrations.
  • Complex Vector edit from existing vector material - If you have an existing vector illustration you love but want to customize it to fit your content, we can work on creating a brand-new illustration with your inspiration as a basis.
  • Blueprint/Floor Plans (tracing only) - If you have a rough blueprint or floor plan that you want to reproduce in a clean and striking manner, no problem! We can trace over your sketch and create a beautiful floor plan that looks professional and brand-new.
  • Merch Illustrations (vector-based) - Sometimes, merch needs to be illustrated to show off its more technical features. We can create simple to complex vector illustrations of your branded merchandise.
  • Children’s storybook (digital illustrations/vector-based) - A children’s storybook isn’t complete without custom illustrations! Send us your story and let us know which passages need accompanying pictures.
  • Illustrated Manuals - Just like children’s storybooks, manuals aren’t complete without guiding images. We can help you create these helpful pictures for your instructional manual.
  • Coloring Books - Coloring books are all the rage — among adults! Apparently, coloring is a really therapeutic exercise. We can help you create interesting, fun-to-color illustrations.

But of course we have limitations, here’s a list of what we can’t do:

  • Inappropriate custom illustration requests that are sexually explicit, defamatory, ethnically or racially offensive, or anything that is against Design Pickle’s core values.
  • Trademarked names, brands, and quotes
  • Digital Painting (water color or paint effects and the like)
  • Gaming Assets
  • Art for your comics/graphic novel
