ILLUSTRATIONS: Photographs and Original Graphics


Several of the articles will be illustrated by photographs supplied by the client. MetaGlyfix must examine and prepare client photographs early in the design stage. Photos are measured, cleaned, scanned, resized, and adjusted for contrast and sharpness. They are also tentatively cropped at this time for use in drafts and early proofs. Their eventual size and cropping will not be determined until the final step of production, when all elements are put in place.


Original Graphics
