High quality, professional business illustration and advertising illustration for sales communication, presentations, pitch decks, powerpoint presentations and more. Design of marketing and merchandising articles. Ian David Marsden. www.marsdenillustration.com
A very fun recent assignment was to design a series of wine labels (red, white and rosé) featuring scenes from in and around the O Mas Troquet restaurant and Friday street market in 34270 Vacquières, France (Pic St Loup Region, Hérault, Languedoc) and also a label for their custom made flavoured rums.
The concept is that when all the bottles are placed next to each other, they depict the local ambience inside and outside and you almost have a continuous story or panorama.
Business illustration – clean, clear, appealing, professional
Artist Ian David Marsden with decades of international experience in the field can provide you with custom-made business illustrations in various styles. Clean, clear, appealing and highly professional illustrations in black and white, with a spot color or fully colored. Text and processes which may seem rather dry or technical can be livened up and rendered more enjoyable and interesting. The readers’ focus can be guided towards important details in a subtle and appealing way. These illustrations can also be used as chapter headers, icons or thumbnails on websites or presentations. There is also the option of having animation or drawing or sliding hand effects, music and voiceover added as well.
Please contact me for a free consultation and a comprehensive flat-fee estimate which will include transferral of usage rights.

Logo Design for Les Héritières de Bacchus by Ian David Marsden
<< Trois frères Loup, Guiral et Clair, tous amoureux de la belle Bertrade, partirent en croisade sans savoir lequel d’entre eux elle choisirait comme époux. Au retour de Terre sainte, la bien-aimée avait trépassé. Désespérés, ils décidèrent de vivre en ermites au sommet de trois pitons voisins. Celui sur lequel vivait Guiral devint le mont Saint-Guiral. Il est situé près du mont Aigoual . Celui sur lequel vivait Clair fut nommé le mont Saint-Clair ( c’est à ses pieds qu’est bâtie la ville de Sète). Installé sur le Pic auquel il donnera son nom, Thieri Loup mourut le dernier. Comme ses deux frères, il avait allumé tous les 19 mars de sa vie un feu en la mémoire de sa bien aimée.>>
Pour fêter la Belle Beltrade, nous organiserons, tous les ans au printemps, une journée où les femmes seront mises à l’honneur
