    Great another tool to make my startup look like all the other startups.

    Thinking outside the box guys, keep it up.

      Denis: Good job here on Stubborn.fun, illustration for startups is a tough problem (speaking from inside a startup) if you don't have budget for a set of custom illustrations. Other than that, once you choose a style, you're stuck to that illustrator for the rest of the time.

      Is there any way to quickly change skin colors / other colors?

        Thank god we have people reminding us of the bubble we are operating in. This is not a negative comment, this is simple and plain a reminder. And the reason for why it stings or for why you are not laughing about it, is because you know it's true.

      Why even complain about things that are released for free for people to use? Id love to see your contribution to the design community please.

        Do you really think designers will use this generator? Or will it be the start-ups who don't hire designers/illustrators because of these generators?

          Most definitely for start-ups. Most of the time you can't afford getting a proper illustrator to help you evolve your brand so using things like this and maybe modify it to your liking helps out a lot.

          What's important are the features at that point and gaining new users. Not amazingly perfect illustrations. That comes with user numbers and money.

          I think all designers want to have amazing illustrations. They don't want to default. But if they have to, it's great to have it available at least.

          Same goes for typefaces like google fonts & photography like unsplash. Free is fucking great.

        That's really not a fair statement though, because they are not complaining about a contribution to the community that will further its development, they point out that this contribution will do the opposite - it keeps us in our bubble. It's not fair to treat people like that.

          To be fair, the kind of person who uses free-to-use graphics is not usually the same kind of person who is going to spend $100/hr on bespoke illustrations.

          Different horses for different courses.

          Doing what everyone else does is up to the designers themselves in my opinion. If you want to stand out, do it, if you don't, then don't. Free things are just free things.

      Tired opinion.

      The only goal for products is to make customers achieve their goals. Normal users are not overexposed to illustrations because, unlike you, their job is not browsing dribbble nor do they visit SaaS landing page for fun. Contemporary illustrations are not an issue for users - meaning they're literally not an issue.

      If you think uniqueness is more important than effectiveness, and treat design as art, then you are far worse for this industry than an illustration pack.
