6 useful websites for downloading free illustrations


Work illustrations by Storyset

They say a good illustration can really boost your presentations, websites, or products. 

So here's a handy list of websites where you can download illustrations for free:

1. Undraw

I typically start any visual search with Undraw. There are a lot of illustrations there, with a very consistent look and feel. 

Undraw - free illustrations

I love the way those illustrations can be customized using the color picker.
For advanced customizations, I sometimes download the illustration as an SVG file and modify portions of it in Figma

The only problem with Undraw is that it became too popular and widely used by way too many products and websites...

2. Storyset

An awesome collection of free customizable illustrations that can fit products, websites, and presentations. 

The search works good, and there are a few customization options around colors and backgrounds. 

You can download the illustrations as PNG or SVG in case you want to further modify them with Figma.
