11 Places to Find Beautiful Free Illustrations

Alegria Illustrations

2020 saw the rise of this trend with countless sites, SaaS websites, startup websites and design sites adding illustrations to their landing pages. A move sideways from full-screen photos. From a technical performance point of view, it’s a good move, as PNG images are almost 4 times smaller than their JPEG counterparts.

From a design point of view it’s also a good move, as it looks fresh, although more and more overdone.

Query the word “illustration” on Google Image search and you’ll see what I mean.

The vector-based style, characterized by flat colors, simple shapes and a pared-down color palette, doesn’t have an official name. It’s most widely referred to as “flat illustration” or, pejoratively, “Corporate Memphis,” alluding to its frequent appearance in ads and interfaces for tech companies like Lyft, Spotify, Oscar, Airtable, and many others. Facebook calls its “gangly-armed” cartoon figures “Alegria.”

However, if you’re still thinking to join the trend, here’s a list of 11 places to find such illustrations.
