Graphic Design Inspiration: 18 Digital Illustrations to Feel City Spirit

Cityscapes have always been a reliable source of inspiration for artists, sketchers, and photographers. Today we offer you to feel the city spirit with a set of stunning digital illustrations. Graphic designers worked well here: presenting a variety of styles, the artworks feature interesting details and visualized stories. Some of the pictures show real cities – you can guess them by silhouettes of prominent landmarks and well-known cityscape. The others are more abstract transferring the touch to any city you would like to see there.

Digital illustrations like these present a powerful tool and may be used for diverse purposes. They can become the core visual element for both print and digital products adding style and beauty to books, magazines and posters, web pages and hero banners, app screens, postcards, and many other things. Today they are also growing their presence as the fast and well-proven way to set the necessary theme, atmosphere and emotional appeal in user interfaces. So, check them all and catch the vibe.
