The illustrator should be experienced in creating high quality supporting illustrations/design for product instructions, manufacturing operations, assembly, installation, troubleshooting or something similar. Illustrations/designs to be based on simple hand sketches, supporting technical content, and verbal direction from engineering and other technical professionals. Designs and images will support complex written content.
The role requires more of a Leonardo da Vinci rather than Picasso. CAD design is not required; however using CAD image outputs within the illustrations is needed in some cases. Although the complexity of the illustrations will vary, in general the work involves a large volume (several hundred or more) of relatively simple designs including photo editing, line drawings, pen tracing, annotations, text directions, arranging multiple images, isometric views layout, process flow diagrams, etc... Clear and compelling illustrations that get the idea across visually, created quickly and efficiently, are the objective - not flashy artistic creativity.
