...when the request is for vector art the challenge is intensified.

Devices and Diagrams

This is a device that tests cats for common diseases: Feline Leukemia Virus (FeLV), Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV) and Heartworm (HW). Drawings like these can be deceptively difficult – they require a considerable amount of information to be packed into minimal space, yet still be understandable at a glance.

I truly enjoy the challenge, and when the request is for vector art the challenge is intensified. These were designed to be animated, so I made sure the Illustrator work was as clean as possible

It's often necessary to keep vector work as clean as possible. The complex areas here were generated by Illustrator when converting certain shapes to 3D.

A Successful Concept

The first version of this type of point-of-care test was released while Zoetis was part of Pfizer. Since then they've spun off on their own and have expanded the concept with devices that contain multiple tests as well as canine tests.

One successful device becomes... well, eight actually. Zoetis has rapidly expanded their line of devices to include diseases that affect both dogs and cats.

The FFH (orange) version is the most recent, and essentially combines the two devices previously illustrated above: heartworm, feline leukemia (FeLV), and feline immunodeficiency virus (FIV). Cats happen to have their own version of HIV, and it's a growing concern for veterinarians. Tests like these take roughly 10 minutes and can be done while you wait at the vet – positive results should be checked with more thorough testing.
