All our illustrations can be downloaded as SVG or PNG files. The former are fully editable, supported by most browsers and can be converted to shapes due to their vector nature, whereas the latter have a good compression rate, more color depth and support transparency.
On the other hand, animations can be downloaded as an HTML file to use on your site with inline SVG and CSS. They can also be exported as a GIF or an MP4 video, allowing you to select the size and the background color to adapt it to your project.
Please note that it’s not possible to export an animation as a GIF or an MP4 video containing both entrance and looping effects at the same time. If you need both types, you must export it twice: one with entrance effects and another with looping effects.
