Diana Stoyanova shares 9 inspiring Product Illustrations she admires

Character designer and illustrator Diana Stoyanova continues to impress our Dribbble community with her bold, colorful, and whimsical Product Illustrations. Check out the nine designs that have had a huge impact on the Bulgarian-based designer and hear how they’ve inspired her work over the years.

“Dribbble is the main source I use for design inspiration—I can reach out to fellow illustrators and overall, feel like I’m a part of a community. I admire the work of all of the illustrators and designers mentioned below and I’ve been following most of them since day one on Dribbble.

What really draws my attention to a certain illustration is contrast, shape, and especially coloring.

“As an illustrator that primarily creates characters, it’s necessary for me to keep exploring, testing out new aesthetics, and never get used to just one style. That’s why disproportional characters and bold color combinations are definitely my thing right now. What really draws my attention to a certain illustration is contrast, shape, and especially coloring. Color sets the mood and dictates the tone of your creation. I like characters that are being used as a seamless part of a composition and are well balanced with the overall design. I hope these illustrations inspire others as well because they sure do get my creative juices flowing.”
