illustrations.the new visual trend

in Design on October 16, 2017

Depending on the purpose an illustration is an expressive way to bring to reality ideas and visions.

To start with the with the etymology of the word, ” illustration, is late Middle English (in the sense ‘illumination; spiritual or intellectual enlightenment’): via Old French from Latin illustratio(n- ), from the verb illustrate.” 

From the beginning we understand that this kind of artworks are very special. There are many books for inspiration, for designers especially. We are sure that our vendors from both and are making a huge research on the market. This is a true art as painting and sculpting but in the digital era we’ve replaced the brush with graphic tools. Nowadays we can draw portraits and artistic images for books covers, postcards and business cards.

It is a huge difference between a illustrator and a designer.

A designer is more like an organizer for the compositions. Their attention is focused on a certain idea and work on details for the final product.

A illustrator  produces the imagery of  himself or other objects around like nature, humans, animals, flowers etc but on their own style and technique.
