Vectorized MemoriesMarch 15th, 2012
The year of 2007 was was the year that I transitioned from a high school educator to a career in design. While I was looking for my first professional opportunity (which turned out to be as a Graphic Designer at Gempler’s mail-order catalog) I took a job as a contract illustrator at the Patient Education Institute. PEI provides clinics and other medical institutions with illustrated flash tutorials that assist medical staff and provide patients with a resource they can access after they leave the clinic. I provided PEI with over 200 illustrations ranging from fruit to complicated medical equipment and procedures.
Looking back on these is like opening a time capsule. I often used friends and family that were close to me as the subject matter, model and muse for the illustrations. It was cool to crack open the archives and see these familiar faces. Thanks to everyone that put up with the photoshoots!
