Looking for high-quality illustrations for your projects? Here are 13 online services that make it easy to find them.
As a designer, you’ll often have a great concept for a project, but the cost of commissioning the illustrator will be beyond your or your client’s budget. The idea of using stock art might seem off-putting, because there’s always a sense of diluting your creativity by using work not created specifically for the brief. But the good news is, these days online stock art sites are no longer limited to a handful of tired clichés, but a huge and eclectic variety of illustrations in various styles and sizes, by thousands of talented illustrators.
There are many stock art sites out there, from larger companies where illustrations is only part of their offering, to smaller sites focusing purely on illustrators – anything from a tiny handful to a more extensive roster. Below is a list of some of the best and most popular sites for you to check out. We hope you find what you’re looking for!
A nice feature of iStockphoto’s site is that it allows you to filter by dominant colour. You can also find the empty space you’re seeking in the design for text, and display your results accordingly. This is hugely refreshing given the amount of time it can sometimes take to find the right illo. iStockphoto’s illustrations are a little more vector-based and slightly more stock-like than most on this list. But its range is extensive and relatively inexpensive.
