Frequently asked questions to answer a medical illustration request
A central point in an illustration production is desired content. Do you have sketches of the content or do the contents have to be worked out? What is the key message of the illustration, which elements are shown (organs, structures, devices) ? If medical tools are to be shown, can material like photos, design drawings be used, or are they even available as 3D-CAD data? Is the illustration composed of sub-illustrations (eg enlargement window) or should a series be created (eg diagnosis, treatment, treatment result)?
Where should the illustration be used? What is the target audience of the image? Depending on the area of application, different requirements arise with regard to complexity, presentation, image composition and also image size.
Size/resolution of the illustration
In what size should the illustration be used? A5, A4 or poster size? Portrait or landscape? Enormous image sizes (eg 25000px * 25000px - 2m x 2m in 300dpi) for posters or trade fair banners are also possible.
Which rights of use do you need for the illustrations? The range extends from unlimited in time, media with exclusive use to a non-exclusive use.
Which style or look do you prefer for your illustration?
