I saw this Oracle illustration yesterday and it was produced by Google Ad randomly on a web page. I love the illustration in the background. I love 'corporate' illustrations especially when they are in a form of a 3D. Microsoft did a similar illustration for their "Visio" product. Now, my questions are:

enter image description here

  1. What do you call these type of illustrations?
  2. Is anyone familiar with this illustration?
  3. Is there a gallery where I can find these type of 'corporate' illustrations?

Looks like an isometric vector image to me :] – Johannes Apr 30 '11 at 20:58
this type of perspective is called isometric. – jackJoe May 1 '11 at 8:48
@Johannes, @jackJoe: You need to make your comments into answers otherwise you won't get any credit. – Philip Regan May 4 '11 at 13:00
Yeah, but DA01 mentions vectors and isometric in his answer as well. I don't think I need to repeat it :] – Johannes May 5 '11 at 2:30

Not sure there's a specific style name for that, but some terms that could be applicable:

  • flat
  • iconography
  • isometric
  • vector
  • infographic

Many of the stock art sites will have collections of all sorts of illustration styles for use. is a popular vendor.

I'm looking for similar illustrations in the corporate design. Especially for Oracle and Microsoft. I'm collecting these.. Anyone famaliar? – Dylan Cole May 2 '11 at 14:39
As stated in my answer, check out – DA01 May 2 '11 at 14:50
+1 for isometric and vector as apt descriptions. The rest of those listed don't have to be either isometric or vector – Philip Regan May 4 '11 at 12:59
