Some examples of what I mean:
I have seen designs like this popping up everywhere, but when trying to search for it/tips on how to achieve a similar style, the only label I could find was broadly 'flat design' (or Flat Design 2.0, like in this question, but which doesn't narrow down on the shapes themselves or the grainy shadows). The style I am looking for specifically includes:
- Few colours, but vivid ones, often used abstractly (see the third example: the skin colour is reused on the shoes and roses, and as a detail on the trousers). Also gradients sometimes appear, especially to indicate depth.
- Grainy/noisy shadows, sometimes looking like a paintbrush stroke (see the details in the fourth example)
- Disproportionate shapes, usually people with big bodies and small heads (the last example demonstrates this well, although it is not coloured too interestingly). Shapes are (almost) always curved/rounded off: never completely sharp.
I would like to get a name for this style, and I'd be interested in any resources talking about making it yourself. I think it gives off a certain feel that I would really like to replicate, but am unsure how to start, partially because I don't know the name/what to search for.
