Thesis design and illustration

Thesis design

Welcome to evelienjagtman.com; your spot for thesis design and illustration. I make my designs with care, quality and an eye for detail. For a handmade look you are in the right place. All my designs are unique: you’ll get a completely personal design for your thesis cover. I love it when there’s a part of your subject in the design as well as “a part of you”. In this way you’ll have a design in which other people will recognize you. We’ll go for the “WOW effect”.

Illustration

What is better? Drawing or writing? Together they’re strong. You’ll remember a text with a supporting image much better than text alone. Especially when you’re someone who has trouble reading. Because of my background as a doctor I know how difficult it can be to explain something to a patient. An illustration can help tremendously. In my illustrations one thing is most important: the message has to be clear and easy to understand. By illustrating I try to support health care in the best way I can.

PhD Workshop

Would you like to make your own thesis cover? But you don’t know how? Then subscribe to one of my workshops! We’ll mainly focus on getting a good idea: which is what you need for a good design. I’ll help you brainstorm and generate ideas. I’ll also explain the basis of a good composition. Be aware: it is not a computer course. You’ll use pencil and paper and you’ll get away from that screen for a whole afternoon.
