This experience has provided us with the know-how to creatively approach the sensitivities and legalities of the industry and enables us to offer a comprehensive understanding and application of graphic and new media design within the context of healthcare.

Working across all media means we produce seamless, measurable, campaigns that are cost-effective and engaging.

The team at AA9 are committed to delivering projects on time, a factor that is especially relevant in a sector that operates with a detailed approval process and very tight deadlines.

Sourcing and supplying images


Where photography isn't provided by the design agency a number of elements need to be considered when sourcing the correct 'High Resolution' files for print.

  • Ensure the file is a minimum of 300 dots per inch (dpi) at 100% required size (example: if the image is to appear over the whole cover of an A4 publication the image will need to be a minimum of 210mm x 297mm at 300dpi.
  • Please make sure images for print use are not dragged from the internet or from other electronic formats such as Word/PowerPoint documents. This is because they will be small files sizes and low in resolution (72–150dpi) in order to speed up on-screen viewing. And they will almost definately pixelate at the print stage.
  • Correct files need to be supplied as one of 3 file types (listed in order of preference):
    – TIFF (filename.tif)
    – JPEG (filename.jpg)
    – EPS (filename.eps).
  • Files such as GIF's (filename.gif) are NOT suitable to use for print, this is a low resolution file usually found on websites.
  • As a ‘general rule' if your file size is less than 1.5 MB the chances are it will not be suitable for print.


When supplying logos for use in lithographic or digital printing much of the same rules apply as those outlined in 'Photography' above. However, there are a couple of further points to consider:

  • You will often find the design agency asking for an ‘Original Artwork file'. This will usually be an EPS file (filename. eps) created with a professional drawing package such as Adobe Illustrator. These files are in Vector format and can be scaled up and down to any size without effecting the visual quality. In some cases (perhaps if a photo appears in the logo) the original file will be a TIFF file; if this is the case the same rules as outlined in ‘Photography' above will apply.
  • Please make sure logos for print use are not dragged from the internet or from other electronic formats such as Word/PowerPoint documents. These will be small files sizes and low in resolution (72–150dpi) in order to speed up on-screen viewing. These files will almost definately pixelate at the print stage.
  • Files such as GIF's (filename.gif) are NOT suitable to use for print. GIFs are low resolution files usually found on websites.
  • As a ‘general rule' if your file size is less than 1.5 MB the chances are it will not be suitable for print.
