Hello, I am Clint Ford, a Freelance Technical Illustrator that specializes in Instructional and Product Illustrations. 

My illustrations visually explain complicated features and benefits and clearly show technical product details. From a simple product illustration for a website, to an entire parts catalog for a vehicle, my illustrations aim to clearly explain my clients products and eliminate consumer confusion. I want people to look at my illustrations and instantly understand what is being communicated without the guesswork.

I am your illustrator for instructions or technical product illustrations.

HD Plus - I worked on a large project to create illustrations that would be displayed on an interactive tablet to explain the operation of a new home dialysis machine . It felt great to work on a product that would make life easier for patients diagnosed with diabetes and to assist nurses with the training. My mom was a nurse her entire career and always complained of terrible instructions. 

Testimonial - “I am truly grateful for your responsiveness and service level. It's been terrific and most appreciated.”
Sangeeta Sahni, Sr. Director of Marketing - Home Dialysis Plus

Patagonia - I helped out Patagonia by creating consumer hang tag illustrations for their products and illustrations for their sales workbooks.

Testimonial - “Hey, Clint, good news, the boss (Mr. Chouinard) said he's good with everything and wouldn't change it. Nice work!
Sarah Sweeny - Art Director, Patagonia

Amway - I worked on a variety of projects for Amway, mostly for their airline division, most were very time sensitive.

“Clint Ford blew our minds on how easy he was to work with on our project. We needed instructional illustrations to use on our packaging and Clint not only understood quickly what we needed, he delivered just as quickly and with style! Clint was very responsive, open to feedback (the little we had) and the quality of his work is incredibly strong and unique. His illustration style elevated our brand as we went from instructional photography to his highly stylized illustrations. We highly recommend Clint and will definitely be using him in the future.”
