20 Website Designs That Feature Cool Illustrations

Great illustrators are relatively rare. While I definitely give creed to graphic designers who have a command of size, space and color, it’s one thing to bring those elements to life using pre-defined shapes yet quite another to make them work in harmony by freehand. That’s probably one reason most websites do not feature illustrations in their core designs. I wonder what the web would look like if it were created only by illustrators. Judging by the following 10 website designs, pretty darn cool.
