MASTERING ILLUSTRATIONS

  1. ILLUSTRATION SOURCES
    There are many free illustration sources out there online. Here is a list of Some of my favorites:
  • stories.freepik.com - my favorite now
  • undraw.co
  • drawkit.io
  • manypixels.co
  1. CONSISTENCY
    Even though there are many websites with illustrations. stick with one for each design. or at least stick with one particular style. It also applies to colcrs.
  2. SIZING
    Illustrations are not icons - they contain many details which are crucial to understand them. When placing an illustration, make sure it's big enough to see everything.
  3. PLACEMENT
    Illustrations look fantastic on landing pages, headers. digital product pages etc. Try to experirnent with placing them. just make sure they are not too small!
  4. DETAILS
    Illustrations with backgrounds like blobs or environment 100k better. Another way of making an illustration look more natural is adding a shadow. This takes just a few seconds.
  5. PERFECT FIT
    Your illustration has a meaning to the user. By looking at it, he creates an idea what your product is about, so try to make sure that your illustration fits the message you want to tell.
