Visual identity

Illustration

Like the rest of brand style, our illustrations are clean and simple. Similar to our photography style, they should also feel authentic.

When to use illustration

Illustration should be used sparingly – in places where photography is not appropriate to convey your message. Common places where illustration could be used:

  • Infographics
  • Empty states (when a page has no results, or when something goes wrong)
  • On-boarding (introducing a new feature, or explaining how to use your product)
