The mood of creative people often depends on the seasons and the weather. Have you ever noticed it? It feels especially in spring. When the cold, gray winter is over, the creative mind starts really blooming. It is evident in the selection of lively, cheerful color variations. From March and April, the design language also becomes more open-minded, louder, more colorful, and bolder. Flowers and the bright colors are actually an epitome of spring. That is exactly what this article about — floral illustrations can give us many opportunities and inspiration.
Photo or Illustration: What is The Best Type of Image?
You may ask why Illustrations and not photos? Most of the images can be roughly divided into two groups: Illustrations and other images (including photos and paintings/drawings).
The more realistic you want to make your design, the more likely photos are. Illustrations, on the other hand, should be the first choice when it comes to visually presenting or supplementing a topic in the simplest possible way. On the other hand, other pictures, such as classic paintings are primarily suitable for decoration. Although photos can also serve this purpose, such as beautiful landscapes.
In general, the type of image you should use depends on the characteristics and emotions you want to share.
Where to Use Floral Illustrations?
A floral print in the last few years becomes more and more popular in the fashion world. The focus is on realistic and abstract flowers, tropical and ethnic ornaments, patchwork, and buds of field plants. It is everywhere now: on dresses, coats, shoes, shirts, skirts and so on.
Everyone can start a business nowadays by adding spring motives to a t-shirt or hoodies with floral illustrations to clothing mockups.
The floral decor has been used in interior design, it seems, from time immemorial, but even now you can choose original solutions that fit perfectly into the style and look modern. Flowers are a symbol of life, the embodiment of natural beauty. Maybe that is why they give the interior a special coziness and make it more elegant. There are a lot of options for floral decoration:
- On the kitchen stove;
- As decoration of doors and mirrors (stained glass patterns);
- Flower borders and corners;
- Roller blinds.
They also decorate now with ordinary and 3D stickers, stencils, posters, and paintings. And all this with a floral print small or big, it doesn’t matter. People love it.
In Web Design
Many florists can use ready-made florist website templates for creating their landing pages or online stores. But for creating a website from scratch or making some changes in template design, floral illustration can be helpful.
- As background. It suits the best in web design.
- As icons.
- As a logo. Learn how to create a logo by yourself with photoshop tutorials.
- In ads, banners, and posters
- As a print for textiles, cups, postcards, and so on.
In fact, the floral illustrations are suitable everywhere. The most vital thing is not to overdo it with them. Because they can draw to match attention and distract from your product and information on the website.
