A ransomware attack leaves a company with few options. One may be to resort to backup systems, if they exist. Another may be to simply pay the ransom. And then there’s cyber insurance. I submitted a range of rough ideas. The rough which was preferred was the one with the ransom mask made from the Bitcoin logo suggestive of the secretive extortion that companies are being subjected to.

It was fun then to play around with textures and colours whilst being mindful not to lose sight of the key message that I wished to communicate in the illustration. I've worked with Brianna at Lexpert many times before and her page designs always allow the illustrations to breathe.
