A technical illustrator’s job is to visually depict technical information in the form of diagrams. Their diagrams should have accurate dimensions and proportions and be effective in communicating the details of the object involved so that it can be understood even by a nontechnical person. Thus a technical illustrator’s CV should contain details about his artistic flair, certification as a technical illustrator, and experience in this field. This resume can also be used by artists or design personnel.
