Gonna need some CDN action. Page took a very long time to load. Looks very interesting, though!
Hi, Charlie. Thank you for the feedback. My name is Joanna, Curator of Illustration UI. We aware of the slow page loading and we are working on it. We are here listening and answering any questions, feel free to send us more feedback if you have. Regards, Joanna
While an interesting concept, it's going to need a solid re think about how it's loading in for it to ever be successful. The below is the load and load time before anything even showed up. I'm in Australia.
I don't know if you're the author or not, but for the author or anyone else reading, a couple of simple suggestions to get going on how to make a drastic improvement towards this feeling snappy and quick:
Critical Path CSS + lazy loading of assets. Get it feeling like it loads up in an instant and then content starts filtering in.
Optimise/compress the assets being loaded in. 12 assets with 1mb or more of size and the largest being 4.9mb is crazy.
Feedback, feedback, feedback. The more feedback you can provide to your users of what is going on the better. If you have to pre load some stuff, make it clear what's going on. A logo in the middle does nothing to tell me why i'm waiting.
I had to wait for 30 or so image assets to load on top of the rest of the sites assets before anything showed up. I opened my dev tools to see if it had hit a JS snag and stopped loading entirely.
Thank you for taking the time to write the feedback and suggestions. We are here listening. I looked the image that you sent, 3 mins are crazy, it should never happen on any websites. I will keep your suggestions in mind when optimizing the website, and find a better way for the loading time, what should display to users so they know what's going on. Thank you again for your feedback Best, Joanna
This website takes 25 seconds to load.
Sorry for the bad experience. We are working on the speed optimization. Come back to check Illustration UI tomorrow and let us know if it will work faster.Thank you again for reporting this issue here.
Why do you hijack the users scrolling? There's absolutely no need for that and it's a terrible UX decision!
Hi Benjamin. We fixed this issue, thank you so much for mentioning here. We always strive to improve the user experience. Best, Joanna
You should add
will-change: transform;to the images.
Thank you, Thomas. I will mention that to the engineer. Best, Joanna
Hi My name is Joanna. Thank you for posting Illustration UI, Chris.
Illustration UI is a collection of beautiful and creative illustrations used by some of the world's leading product and branding companies. When it comes to design, what makes people happy is feeling connected, smart, and creative. Illustration has the power to create a personal and emotional connection between the user and the brand.
As a designer, I strive to create a unique, pleasing and impactful design style that users will always remember. As I was searching online for inspiration, I struggled to find resources specifically dedicated to excellent illustration. So I started collecting great examples of illustration UIs manually. I am very excited to share what I have collected with you, so you can get inspired too!
You can filter the illustrations by Company, Artist, Category and Design Links. All illustrations are hand-picked by me. New illustrations will be added on a daily basis, so stay tuned!
I'd love to hear your feedback, and your ideas about how to make Illustration UI better and more relevant to you. I’d be happy to answer any questions that you may have!
