Damn, that's real art. We need more of it. Would maybe still be extremely nice if there could be colorful versions. I want right now to do something with it :D

Pros:

- beautifully - something different - the internet should have more of it - free!

Cons:

- scrolljacking at the page ... -.- - the license was hidden (bottom of the page)

Thank you! Sorry about the scrolljacking at the page :( I can't reproduce this issue. I'm not sure what do you mean about the license, it's free to use.

Each individual can interpret them in their own way, that makes it so re-usable on so many levels and sites. Already implemented on our site and provided a nice credit in the footer. What can I say, I became a fan instantly.

Pros:

Idea and execution

Cons:

Make more :)

I selected "Never Used" because I haven't used any in my landing page... yet.

Pros:

Drawings are weird, in a good way. OPs make great point about how homogenous landing page graphics have become.

Cons:

It's hard to imagine which image I could apply to my own project!

I am a huge fan of illustration styles like these. They are rare, so this is a true gem!

Pros:

Strange, weird but mostly awesome! And geez, can you believe it, it's free! And you can subscribe to be notified of new content.

Cons:

Website scrolling is a bit weird, you need to click, also to go through the examples, takes a bit of getting used to, but no big deal!

Overall, free designs that aren't akin to Microsoft's clip art should be lauded, especially when in black and white, with a base level of absurdism thrown in. Thank you so much for allowing people to use this.

Pros:

Wondrous designs that jog the mind somewhat and help retain memory.

Cons:

The images are quite heavy in size; I ran them through TinyPNG.com and shrunk almost all of them by circa 60% in size.

As a fellow Romanian creative, I say to you congrats on this idea and for this very successful PH launch! Keep making creative stuff!

Pros:

- The style of the illustrations is something new - Great presentation website, PH launch, etc. - Great conceptual ideas - Free

Cons:

- Make more, a new set monthly? - Larger sizes than 1920 - Vector files in the future? - Try colors, but keep the same illustration style
