Profile

Steve received a bachelor of arts degree in Graphic Communications with a minor in Biology, from San Diego State University in 1977. He began his career as a scientific illustrator at Scripps Institution of Oceanography, working there until 1999. During this period, the graphic design and illustration world were changing rapidly. Trained in the traditional arts, using straight edges, ruling pens and exacto knives, Steve worked to introduce the new world of digital/electronic design to the Institution. The University of California in general, and Scripps Institution specifically were aggressive first adaptors of computerized work stations and internet based communications. These innovations provided Steve the opportunity to be an early user of computer-based design and illustration software. He began using Adobe Illustrator in the late 1980’s, and soon afterward, Photoshop and other design and illustration software. Spanning these two time periods has given Steve a unique outlook on illustration; fortunate to be trained with a foundation in life drawing and visual composition, and appreciative that his career has carried over to a time when airbrushing and painting can be done with a mouse and a stylus instead of a respirator and paint brushes. Steve began his business, Steve Cook Illustration, in 1999 and has been working for medical device manufacturers and agencies specializing in medical device marketing since that time. He is always looking for new opportunities to communicate your medical device story through effective illustration.
