Illustrations have a growing focus in catalogues. Beyond traditional product illustration, international catalogues require pictograms in order to reduce the amount of text and improve legibility.

Photographs often ill-suit professional products: a drawing better reflects its key features. It should be both of a high graphic quality and accurate to meet raising expectations of professional clients.

Using pictograms is a key success factor for international, cross-media catalogues. Pictograms improve legibility as they reduce the amount of text and can be common on all media.

Illustrate products esthetically and precisely

By taking over Editechnic's activities, Abaque has acquired a reknowed know-how in the field of professional products illustration.
