Let's Talk About Technical Illustration

Presented by

Ed Perez

About this talk

Join us for this replay of a discussion from February 2022 with Ed Perez, now a senior technical illustrator at Cyient. We discuss the work of technical illustrators, the changes impacting the discipline, and the role of metadata and taxonomy in the creation of modern technical illustrations. Ed talks about his passion for solving problems (inventing solutions) and the role that technical illustrations play. Additionally, we discuss with Ed his passion for creating "patent graphics" — a type of illustration used to convey information to gain approval for patents from the US Patent and Trademark Office). Ed has designed, illustrated, and is attempting to patent an innovative invention — a green energy solution that may someday allow us to no longer rely on the way we currently (inefficiently and dangerously) produce wind energy. Ed shows the illustration he made and the resulting 3D-printed image (a tangible, real-world model). Ed will also answer questions from (and provide advice to) technical communicators interested in a career in technical illustration. The Content Advantage talk show is brought to you by The Content Wrangler and Zoomin Software.
