We've been extremely busy for the past 2 years almost and I do apologize for not following up with the forum, i'm really surprised by how full of super insightful data now. I think am gonna hangout here a lot!
This post is not directly related to icons and it is not self promotion but I find here the most trusted minds in design so please if this is breaking the rules let me know or just delete it 😃 @MonicaMatei
So what me and the team have been up to for the past 2 years? We've been creating stock illustrations for websites and apps but not really following the niche that is everywhere now ..we were focusing more on creating something that reflects personality. The main target was creating worlds that the illustrations or characters live in and make stories that are witty yet delivers a message and can be useful for any type of audience.
Few days ago we released our Pre-release: a free scene builder: https://www.getillustrations.com
just to test the market and the response from our user base and it was extremly good! people loved it 😁
This is only 1 pack out of 30 ready packs for release and a dozen in the making
Now here's why I'm writing this post:
- I need your feedback on our project, how we can improve it?
- What are the best illustrations out there in your opinions (share links and artists)
- Would these illustrations be suitable to post on Iconfinder? Maybe Iconfinder should make a new category called illustrations (this is a must to keep up with the market needs in my opinion)
- Icons that works with illustrations .. this is a topic on it's own but I will just share a brief here. Almost every website or app uses icons and illustrations for the UI and the icons much match the illustrations style to give a nice experience for the user ...what if we create some collaboration project .. for example @laurareen creates icons and we create illustrations that match these icons and both of them can be posted as a full pack on iconfiner to give the user a perfect solution for his/her designs. @MartinLeBlanc
I talk to much .. now I want to hear what you think about this topic and please feel free to criticize as you want 😂 it always helps building up better thoughts.
