about david gifford folio of images by david gifford contact david gifford



I have been working as an illustrator for 35 years, producing commercial illustrations for brochures, leaflets, packaging, books, press-ads; as well as commissions for individual clients.

Whatever the subject – be it a surgeon at work, a robot, landscapes, a portrait, or children at play – my approach is the same: to capture the essence of the subject simply and strongly.

I have experience working in different media - from highly realistic airbrush work to oils and watercolours to simple diagrammatic line art. Most of my current work is digital using the Mac.

My specialist area is in science and medicine, and many of the Folio examples are produced for Science Photo Library. But I am also very involved in worldwide healthcare education particularly for the Child-to-Child Trust, UNICEF and Macmillan.



Other clients include Astra, BBC, the Home Office, Pharmacia (Kabi), Bard, Macmillan, Wolfe Medical, Mims, MSD, Penguin, Synopsis, Boots, M&S, Asda, Lloyds TSB, Telstra.

If you have any questions about my work, or would like to find out about my rates, then call me on +44 (0)20 8546 3462 or email me. I’d be delighted to hear from you.
