    It looks awesome. I see it useful for presentations more than page designs. It's so great AND on trend that everyone will now saturate the market with this library.

    Side note: i just accidentally discovered that you can open/edit sketch files in Adobe XD... Yey!

      Yesss! Presentations are a great use case too, Pedro!

      Regarding the market being saturated; I hope that the library is also used as a base so people can put their own spices and materials and make it their own. Maybe the use of libraries inspires other illustrators to create illustration systems to mix-and-match their own stuff.

      I also hope that non-designers or non-illustrators are able to use humaaans to get their ideas off the ground and later hire a professional illustrator when they can afford it. Sometimes is hard to prove the value of illustration to other stakeholders unless you have something in your hands—showing how your product could look with them.

        You know that no one will do this.

        Product designers are notoriously lazy and use kits like this for everything. Graphic designers might actually try to do their own flip but doubtful.

        This is exactly what I wanted to do with it. I'm for sure going to go in and make it my own. Thanks so much for making this!!!
