Design Corps also has a whole platoon of talented resources in reserve to see any project through from start to finish —from creative resources (copy-writing, editorial services, photography and illustration) to professional business resources (business consultants, publishing consultants and publishers, programmers, social media gurus, and a variety of production options).
And for big projects, where you aren’t even sure what the best way is to go about it, we can help. Check out Design Corps Blueprint— a tool that helps you understand the possible options, obstacles, costs and schedules so that you can plan your campaigns well.

Design Corps is also able to add to any project informational graphics that help you to convey your message even better. We have produced technical illustrations and graphs for books, curriculum and marketing collateral for various industries including:
• medical (cancer treatment)
• engineering (water purification systems)
• business consulting
• and psychology
Design Corps has supported a variety of projects from books to web sites with a supply of icons, illustrations, graphs, or charts. These have ranged from fun art for kids to serious demonstrations of medical practices.
BLACK and WHITE ILLUSTRATION
We at Design Corps have been asked to do grayscale illustrations for a wide variety of companys and organizations. One common use of our work is in children’s Sunday School curriculum. What is especially appreciated is our ability to take serious concepts from the Bible and make them accessible and appealing to children. We have done art for all ages of children and for many denominations.
Whether it is abstract ethical concepts using extremes caricatures (such as the one shown here representing the need for encouragement which is too often trumped by the tendency to criticize or judge) …
or showing contemporary issues and characters (such as demonstrating the barriers grown-ups must break through to get the attention of their teenagers) …
or capturing the main plot and themes of a particular book or character (such as Esther in the Old Testament, shown here caught in the middle of her predicament).
Much of the art uses both traditional and digital means to get the optimal result.
Using water colors, colored pencil, or acrylics — as well as PhotoShop — Design Corps has provided full-color illustration for magazine covers, children’s curriculum, music CD covers, magazine advertising, and more. Illustrations shown include:
