The illustration uses an isometric format which allows for a clear and even composition in which many characters and scenes can be shown. The scene shows various scenarios where store assistants are selling products to customers; the dialogue is based on real-life examples of what assistants have told customers regarding warranties and was supplied by the client.
This detail shows an assistant in the process of processing the sale of a product at the checkout desk and handing the customer the warranty. Immediately behind the customer stands a repairman, as mentioned by the assistant.
This detail shows an assistant (modelled on Simon Pegg's character in Shaun of the Dead - notice he has red on him!*) telling the customer that their washing machine is fully covered for any eventuality, however absurd; another assistant demonstrates what he is talking about.
 
* - this was entirely my idea and was a fun little reference to include.
This detail shows an assistant speaking with a customer about televisions. The display of flat screen TVs behind them shows a broadcast by BBC News.
This detail shows a further incidental scene where two customers are trying out audio equipment. Some are loosely based on real-life models.
