Vector Art: Jazz up Your Website with Gorgeous Illustrations
In the fast-paced world that we all call home, grabbing your visitors’ attention can be a challenge. To make sure your website doesn’t go unnoticed, you’ve already applied the major web design trends of this year. Congratulations, but how can you take it a step further? Luckily for you, we’re releasing a lot of nifty features that you can effortlessly add to your layout. Small changes, big impact. Today, we’re proud and excited to present a brand new collection: Vector Art.
Of course, you’ll instantly fall in love with the delicious atmosphere of these handmade illustrations. But there’s much more. Vector images have the magical ability to keep the highest resolution, no matter how big or small you resize them. On top of this, they can be combined and customized, which means that you can use them for any purpose, anywhere on your site. Your imagination is your only limit. Have we piqued your curiosity? We’re about to uncover everything you need to know about Vector Art, where to find it and the best practices for using it on your website.
When size doesn’t matter anymore
Goodbye pixelated images! Vector graphics are constructed using mathematical formulas rather than individual color blocks. It might not sound like a big deal, but it’s actually quite a web design revolution. Thanks to their particular construction, Vector Art can be resized as big or as tiny as you want, without ever compromising on the resolution quality. Therefore, it’s the perfect solution for content that needs to be available in multiple sizes. For example, the same vector illustration of a vinyl record can be used as a menu icon, linking to your music gallery, or stretched out to become a full background image.
Your very own in-house artist
If things couldn’t get any more exciting, well, they just did! You can freely pick all the illustrations that you like, and combine them with one another to create new and unique sceneries. This way, you can create captivating visual stories to carry your visitors with you. Once you realize that their colors and opacity can be customized to effortlessly match your websites’ look and feel, then you’ll understand that Vector Art is an endless source of fun and playfulness. Think of this new addition to the Wix Editor as your very own in-house artist – available 24/7, for free, and just for you!
A huge collection of illustrations for all your needs
Because we like to go all out, we’ve already prepared an incredible Vector Art collection of over 3,000 illustrations, badges, lettering and more. You’ll find everything from animals to characters to food and drink. This way, no matter what your website or business is about, you’re sure to find something that will suit your design.
