Illustrations in our blog
Absolutely none the of the images in our blog are stock photography which we've bought in. It has all been designed in-house in spare moments by our team.
This is particularly true of our blog. We decided it was a great place to explore a range of illustrative styles to show clients what we can do.
Our portfolio shows you how we've responded to particular design briefs which are all, in one way or another, commercial responses for a particular market audience.
However, the design ethic for this blog is different. It's a forum for exploring creativity as well as showing styles and approaches (such as illustration) that we haven't had the opportunity to explore yet because the right project hasn't come up.
In short, think of it like a gallery of experiments. Or a digital sketch pad to explore ideas.
Most of these images have been produced in a relatively short space of time.
We believe it's important to show both what we can do and what's possible.
So you can wander around the blog either with a view to reading something you want to find out more about, or to see how many different ways it's possible to approach simple pictures for blog articles.
We're looking forward to the opportunities and creativity this approach is going to bring us over the coming months.

We have just launched a new app to help reduce waiting times in hospitals across Devon and Cornwall. The app, NHSquicker, allows people to view up-to-date waiting times for local emergency departments and minor injuries units. It also provides information regarding distance and time to different treatment centres, based on the user's location. Reactor15 have been working with Exeter Health and Care IMPACT Network, a collaboration between the NHS across Devon and Cornwall and academics from the University of Exeter to build an app which is widely available for smartphones and tablets, on Apple and Android. The NHSquicker app took six months to build and is a fully native app developed using our own custom framework. Using a native platform which allowed us to build a fast, responsive and reliable experience to users, when accuracy and speed of information is very important. The app also provides information about less urgent NHS services, including GPs, pharmacies, sexual health services, dentists and opticians. Mike Saunders, Managing Director of Reactor15 said: "It’s great, once again, to be involved in building a really useful NHS tool. We were asked to build an app which will not only help reduce waiting times in our local hospitals but will also help patients make the right choices with regards to how and where they receive their treatment. We believe our native app platform is both robust and versatile enough to meet the needs and brief of Exeter Health and Care IMPACT Network." Reactor15 have a good working relationship with the NHS and have already built the award winning HANDi Paedatric, POPs apps and the Devon and Wakefield Formularies. NHSquicker can be downloaded on iTunes and Google Play.
