Beautiful illustrations of black people for your next digital project

Hundreds of Diverse Images
for Your Online Projects

People of color are often underrepresented in illustrations, lacking in the design process and often go unseen in visuals across the internet.  

We saw the lack of diversity as an opportunity to create a free resource for everyone.  As a way to add diversity to online content by showcasing black people and people of color in a myriad of tasks, we hope to be the spark that creates more change in the digital landscape.


We've got templates, too

People of color are often underrepresented in illustrations, which is why John created a series of digital designs of Black people for your next online project.

"Black lives matter."

Speaking of diverse illustrations, how about getting straight to it with Black Illustrations. Illustrations that are both excellent and feature Black people.

"I wanted to create more
diversity in design."

As a web designer, I just didn't see the diversity we needed in illustrations. I've been to every website out there and illustrations including our likeness were few and far between. That, or they were extremely expensive.

I decided to change that with beautiful, custom illustrations featuring black people doing extraordinary things. Our likeness is necessary in design, in conversation and in everything we do. I hope that these images can motivate designers to leverage images that encompass all of us.
