Illustrative web design

Illustration is a very versatile tool that can be used in a variety of ways in design. And when it comes to web design it’s very well known.

Illustrations and cartoon drawings can really bring a web design to life. The advantage to using this technique is the fact that it can appeal to all ages of people, there is a very wide audience that this targets which allows the website to be anything it wants to be, heres a little example of illustrative web design.

This could be good for engineering sites etc.Screen Shot 2017-03-14 at 11.15.17My third and final choice is a site based on habits, it’s technically a quiz but created in a much more approachable way, instead of a boring quiz this designer has used this technique to make it more approachable, this would certainly make me do the quiz over a plain sheet of paper.

Illustrative web design is definitely a technique I would like to look into and maybe use myself.
