What are Graphic Illustrations?

Illustrations in general can be described as images. Specifically, they can be used to decorate and work together with other materials. Perhaps some of the more noticeable uses of illustrations are in children’s books, where the meaning of the text is helped along by the images printed in the book. Of course, that is not the only use of illustrations, as they can also be found in textbooks, where they can help explain technical aspects of a given field.

However, thanks to technological advances, it is possible to find illustrations used in other settings. One example is vector illustrations, which are fairly simple to make, requiring only a program like Adobe Photoshop. It is even possible to use graphic illustrations for software projects like digital art, which allows for more flexibility in the use of those illustrations.

Of course, you can use graphic illustrations in more or less the same way as regular illustrations. For example, you can still use graphic illustrations to decorate various documents, such as emails and e-books if you thought it necessary. Further, simply because these illustrations exist as a software does not exclude them from being used in physical documents. You could just as easily use them as embellishments, particularly ones related to celebratory occasions.

What’s in Graphic Illustrations?

These graphic illustrations, being that they can be used in a variety of settings, might not look too similar at first glance. But in spite of their differences in subjects, themes, and other elements, there are a number of things that they do have in common. These elements can also be found in more unconventional designs like silhouette designs.

  • Like any other image, these illustrations have a subject. After all, there is one element of any given image that demands the most attention. That element is essentially the thesis statement of the image as a whole.
  • Some illustrations can also go so far as to include or even be text. This is not universal or necessary for all kinds of illustrations, but some would find it more necessary than others. Some illustrations are meant to be informative or descriptive in a way, and those purposes could be helped along by the addition of text to make it more clear.
  • You could also say that any image is built around a specific theme. The theme can serve as a unifying idea that brings all the other elements of the illustration together. There are a wide variety of themes that can be used, such as floral or animal themes.
  • One should keep in mind that these illustrations are meant to add to a document or text. With that in mind, many of the examples here feature bright colors, to better stand out and draw the eye. These kinds of colors are often common in advertising, as they are more appropriate for grabbing the attention of viewers.

What Are Illustrations Like?

Many of the qualities of graphic illustrations are also shared across many different kinds of illustrations. This also applies even to different kinds of illustrations, like vector designs, so no matter the illustration, you can expect to find most of the same traits.

  • The first thing graphic illustrations need to be is attention-grabbing. To use them as ornamentation in your work gives your work a certain flair, making it less dry and more colorful. Those are not always qualities you want, but when your output does not need to be formal and dry, these can be desirable qualities.
  • When you use these illustrations, you also want them to be appropriate. You presumably added them to help underline a point. In that case, the illustrations should support such point to strengthen your idea more. Besides, an unrelated illustration can only serve to confuse readers.
  • If the illustrations are indeed meant to be ornamentation for your work, they should also be appealing. Aside from just supporting any idea you may be trying to express, you would also want illustrations that look good. The presence of the illustrations can contribute to the overall aesthetic of your work.
