Simply powerful

Never underestimate the power and boldness of a simple black line. A well-executed pencil can say as much, if not more, than a very detailed colored composition. If the visuals seem superfluous, don’t be afraid to start small and simple.

Attractive accents

Accents are another great introduction to vector and illustration. The right image can work well to help a brand differentiate itself, whether it applies to a logo, a favicon (computer icon for a website) or a menu bar. With a very wide range of possibilities, you will necessarily find one that corresponds to your field or your audience.

RESEARCH TIP:
to find the accents that match your needs, try accent, graphics, branding, watercolor, brushstrokes, painted vector, and vector ribbon.

Abstract concepts

Vector graphics are also a great way to express abstract ideas that might escape traditional photography. Some concepts of modern technology, such as cloud computing, are particularly difficult to photograph, and often a clever illustration is more telling.

RESEARCH TIP:
try with vector concept, vector technology concept and vector of business metaphor.

Creative alternatives

Vectors and illustrations offer a new approach to visuals to attract attention. Take the aerial view of still life, for example. This increasingly popular photographic technique is found all over the Internet – to illustrate blog articles, on landing pages and on social media feeds. It’s beautiful, but when you start seeing these types of photos everywhere, you end up not seeing them anymore, or worse, completely ignoring them. A vector is an unexpected way to illustrate this technique differently and to make your message stand out.

RESEARCH TIP:
use these keywords to find still life vector, aerial view vector, desktop bird’s eye view vector and flat vector.
