Illustration is an integral part of the Dropbox design ecosystem. This section explains its role and how it should be applied.
Most of the illustrations in out-of-home campaigns, advertisements, and digital banners will be hero illustrations, which allow for more-detailed environments and deeper storytelling. All of these illustrations are in the motivational tone category because we want them to trigger the interest of potential users.

Hero illustration can appear on a background that uses a base color or accent color. When the illustration appears on an accent color, the cutout shape is Coconut. (See & Buy only)
Hero illustration can be combined with customer files or product UI. Juxtaposition should follow the same guidelines as customer photography.
