I've seen this art style over multiple websites in the past, but just can't seem to identify an underlying style/category for it. It seems to be some geometry based low-poly, but searches don't really match it. Is it maybe a subset of low-poly?

A couple examples:

I think it's a kind of evolution of characters illustration. Adding the word "character" at the end of each of the following styles, Google shows several results.

  • Pixel Art Characters
  • Isometric Pixel Art Characters
  • Block Isometric Characters
  • Isometric Low Poly Characters
  • Low Poly Characters
  • 3D Low Poly Characters

Block Isometric


Isometric low Poly


Low Poly


3D Low Poly


Yes, I would say that it is in fact low poly art, though it's a cleaner and more contemporary look than traditional low poly art.

I'm sure it has a particular name, can't find it at the moment.

Compare it with other low poly images: (Google Search)

    This tomato and elephant seem to be in a rather different style to the examples in the question. Your examples are definitely 3D, whereas the ones in the question are a sort of hybrid 2D-3D -- for example their heads are definitely 3D but their limbs are just 2D. Commented Nov 20, 2018 at 16:15
  • @DavidRicherby that's what I was trying to point out, Danielillo's answer summed it up excellently.

    FWIW "Low poly papercraft" is what I'd call it, and the result I get from Google image search appear to agree. Commented Nov 20, 2018 at 19:09

It is flat shaded low-poly: each polygon is a single, solid color.
