Digital Illustration Challenge - MintSwift

Digital Illustration Challenge

A while ago, I came up with a design challenge to hone in my digital illustration skills. I finally found the courage to start sharing what I come up! There were several categories in the challenge: nature, food, travel, office & home. And (as you know me), there is a colour palette involved.

All of these flat design illustrations were created in Adobe Illustrator* Enjoy!

Digital Illustration Challenge

15 vector illustrations in flat design style

If you can’t wait to see all of the illustrations from the challenge, watch a video below:

Day 1 - Cactus

Potted houseplant, cacti illustration inspired by the chopping board I found a way back in London’s TK Maxx and have been using it ever since. I’m definitely a crazy plant lady, so anything with flower/plant motif melts my heart

Day 2 - Leaf

A lot of my vector illustrations are heavily influenced by nature. Here’s a flat design minimalist leaf drawing.

Day 3 - Umbrella

It’s time to debunk the biggest myth – everyone says that London is the rainiest city out there. After living here for almost 2 years (time flies!) I can confidently say that it’s so far from the truth!

I designed this brolly illustration based on the famous Queen’s umbrella. I actually got one for my birthday (dreams come true!) but I barely use it

Day 4 - Water Drop

I don’t know why, but I always find water drops inspiring, especially on plants after the rain.

Day 12 - Hourglass

There’s something profound about hourglasses. Maybe it’s that they allow you to focus on a moment.

Day 13 - Calendar

Everyone seems to dread 13th, especially Friday’s. But my husband and I love them! Why? Because we became an official couple on 13th September, almost 12 years ago. The fun fact is that ever since, whenever we can, we’ve been celebrating monthaversaries

Digital illustration of pillows, for all the sleepyheads out there
