Hey, everyone – I’m Howard Pinsky – Senior XD Evangelist at Adobe, and today we’re going to be taking a look at one of my favorite Adobe XD plugins, Undraw, which provides completely free illustrations to use in your projects.
Whether you love or hate the trend, flat illustrations are in – and I may want to use one on this landing page I’ve been building. That’s where Undraw comes into play. Over in my Plugins Panel, I already have it installed, but if you haven’t yet, hit the plus button at the top, give it a quick search, then install.
Once launched, you can immediately start browsing the hundreds of illustrations that are available, or if you have something specific in mind, you can search at the top.
If you’re working with a document that has colors saved within your assets, you’ll see a few of them at the top right, and clicking on any will assign it as the primary color, which is purple by default. The new color won’t be reflected in the preview, but will be applied once downloaded.
Now that I’m set on which Illustration I want to use and my primary color is chosen, clicking on any will copy it to my clipboard where I can now paste it onto any artboard I wish – and because these illustrations are vector, I can transform them as much as I need to.
I can also dive in and edit the individual elements that make up this design. Objects can be moved, scaled, or even deleted, if necessary. You also have the ability to change colors, either on a per-layer basis, or all at once by editing the color within the assets panel.
Finally, since every element is its own layer, these illustrations work beautifully with auto-animate. Here’s a quick example I whipped up simply by duplicating the artboard, modifying a few layers, and hooking them up using a time trigger.
And that’s a look at UnDraw – completely free illustrations available to you directly within Adobe XD. For more XD tips and tricks head on over to LetsXD.com and I’ll see you soon.
