In product design, especially when building a digital product and/or platform. Aside from building a design system, progressing into an organization collaboration, stepping a design language to the stakeholder's table and more. We often forget little things like illustrations, yeah that old thing! To be knowledge, it's a great way to express different kinds of things. Whatever it is an icon, transcending a vision of a feature, on-boarding or just giving a polished look to your product. I think it's really important to include this mindset in the design process.
molistudio ™ is a studio based in Buenos Aires, Argentina, they have cooked up an illustration series about tennis. Simple as that, with the recent worldwide news we all heard of in the field of tennis, I thought it would be cool to have a little close-up to this sport and somehow appreciate all the little details. Obviously, the colours aren't maybe all represented on the actual field, but it's fashionable to share a different palette. What do you think?

The way Doug plays with dimensions and lines totally gets your attention. Your brain explodes trying to match sizes and figuring that the whole dimensions are twisted. His illustrations play with a surreal world where architecture and human figures take center stage. Some elements of his work are oversized, other are tiny.

A mixture of colors, techniques and a result that is looking very close to a real photograph. As always I will be very curious about his process but for now, let's enjoy its purity.

I haven't posted about illustration projects for a long time. I have been a bit too focused on brand identity and UI/UX probably because it's something closer to what I do at work, which helps me to get inspired. However the work of Raul Urias is simply phenomenal and I had to share it here with you all. The style is quite unique, with bold colors and a nice black stroke of color defining the forms. It feels super fresh but with that hint of old school/vintage look. It's hard to explain, so that a look and let me know what you think.

She creates amazing watercolor pieces that will certainly make you hungry.
