So today, I’m going to talk to you about how you could have a custom illustration made for as little as $ 5.

I hope today’s article will be particularly useful to you in case you plan to see one of your photos transformed into a vector art. In this article I will give you a vector art definition (with a particular focus on minimalist portrait) and I will suggest a number of excellent commissioned illustrators who could perhaps help you make a custom illustration.

But let’s take a step back: what is a vector illustration?

As described briefly by Wikipedia, in simple words, vector graphics are a technique of representing an image, or of a typeface generated by a computer, in which the graphic elements that constitute it are a set of geometric primitives, to which colors and even shades can be attributed.

There are numerous types of vector illustrations, but as you have surely read, this is a blog based on a minimalist design so in this article I want to focus on minimalist illustrations. As suggested by the words “minimal” or “minimalist”, a minimalist illustration is a type of illustration (photo illustration or digital drawing) that keeps only the essential elements of a given subject.

Why should I have a vector illustration?

The answer is simple: in most cases, an illustration is very versatile and can suit many occasions, including:

  • Image for social networks: you can decide to set it as the profile image of your social channels and use it for every need;
  • Gifts: whether it’s a Christmas or birthday present, it doesn’t matter. Giving an illustration as a gift can often prove to be a winning move and particularly appreciated by the person you decide to give it to;
  • Posters and greeting cards: illustrations are also particularly suitable for creating personalized and very special posters or greeting cards;
  • See your photos with different eyes: sometimes it takes very little to give an extra detail to your photos.
