Illustration can turn an average website into something really unique, something which identifies and communicates the brand message, and something with the power to seduce us. This gallery of Sites of the Day displays a variety of illustrative styles, the likes of which we are seeing more and more on Awwwards.

When talking about illustration and web design, a term that immediately comes to mind is, our friend, "flat design". Yes, it's being done to death, but we still aren't tired of admitting that this isn't just a passing trend; flat design is playing a vital role in the responsive era. It reigns supreme across desktop and mobile design for it's tremendous interface versatility and it couldn't be easier to integrate into our responsive projects.

The bright future of SVG will no doubt trailblaze its way through webapps with flat design; so far we have seen it relegated to interface icon designs. All that's left is to hope and look forward to this style being applied in new and exciting ways.

Today we bring you not just flat colors, not just simple vector graphics, but also textured and 3D illustrations.
