Tell a story with illustrations

Looking at a carefully created illustration can immediately improve a customer’s moods by triggering happy thoughts. You can even experiment with illustrations on how to prevent workplace accidents or emergency procedures so that the customer can recycle the packaging and it is still useful after the first use. Who knows, some of your experimental design can go viral.

Go wild with the colors
