However much modern technology impresses, CGI in films and lifelike 3D renders, 'old school' art and illustration has endured for centuries and has it's own distinctive appeal. Wisdom Design have the flair to illustrate whatever is required and in the style of the period to which the project relates. Here are a few examples to show this strength in depth. Sometimes there really is nothing like the allure of a 'real' drawing of a pretty scene in Essex, artistic designs for greetings cards or cartoons for newsletters.
