1. The content composition of the free sports material
- Athlete's posture
- Medal/Ranking li>
- Sports equipment
The first category is of course the attitude of athletes when they perform professional sports. When it comes to professional athletes, the first thing you think of is probably the athletes on the field. The hard work, as well as the physical strength/beauty that is shown by the hard work. The most suitable material type for expressing these is of course photos. However, in the promotion of sports, in most cases, the elements that are too hard will be Dissuade many spectators on a whim. Sports are not the privilege of a small number of people, but almost everyone can participate in the activities equally. In order to attract more audiences to participate in it, the best strategy may be to use cute illustrations This not only highlights the core characteristics of a certain sport, but also appropriately lowers the threshold of the sport, giving the audience a subjective motivation of "I can do it with me", thereby enhancing the effect of publicity.
Of course, in the sports category of illustAC, not all content is related to the body. One of the things that coexists with sports is various rankings. Although in most cases we advocate "friendship first, competition second" "But it is undeniable that sports are a process of constantly challenging themselves in the process of competing with each other. Combining this background understanding, it is not surprising that there are so many ranking materials in the sports category. From the gold, silver and bronze crowns and medals to the olive branches that represent the winners, there are all kinds of ranking content. In order to give value to the exciting competition, designers must pay attention to the design of the list.
The third type returns to the sport itself: only this time it is no longer a person, but a thing. Except for a few track and field events, all kinds of sports are indispensable. From all kinds of ball sports to archery and fencing. Related equipment is indispensable for activities that are far away from daily activities. This part is also fully considered in illustAC. Various materials such as baseball, basketball, bows and arrows are available. You can view and download at will!

2. Types of free sports materials
If distinguished by the purpose of use, the sports materials in illustAC can be roughly divided into two categories: element images and background images/borders.
The so-called element map is actually a package of materials with the same theme and the same style. Thanks to the storage methods of vector graphics files such as AI or EPS, these pictures can be split into separate elements for use in actual use. At the same time, because users often use only a small part of these materials when processing such materials, it is not easy to collide with other people's designs. It can be said that this type of picture is the most flexible and convenient type in the hands of professional designers. Compared with other categories, the element maps in the sports category usually need to be used when it comes to ranking-related materials.
Speaking of background images, it is a general term for the materials used for background patterns in presentations. Many people think that the content is the core of the presentation, and the design is just decoration. This kind of thinking is not objective: because the value of the presentation is not to send out the message, but to help people receive the message. A presentation with a reasonable picture can keep the audience's attention for a longer time than a black and white version, so as to achieve more information transmission. And design is the magic weapon related to the efficiency of this process. Although this type of material is usually "cute" as the main feature, there are many tough illustrations in sketch style. The timing of use has to be selected flexibly according to the purpose of promotion.
3. Search for free sports materials
In illustAC, you can use a variety of methods to quickly find the free sports illustrations/vectors you need.
- Search campaigns by keywords
- Adjust the display order of eligible materials
- Search for negative keywords
- By color Search
- Search by number of people
- Find similar sports material
Search by keyword
Search by keyword It is a search function available in any gallery (except designAC). In illustAC, the search object is all the labels under all sports illustrations/vector graphics! Since creators usually add annotations (tags) to the content of the vector graphics when submitting articles, this search method can include most of the free vector graphics in a classic way, and use the material containing the search keywords/words according to the vector graphics. The frequency is arranged. If you don’t want to use the default ranking of popularity, you can try the next search function.
Adjust the display order of eligible materials
It is also due to the characteristics of accepting submissions from general users. The free illustrations/vector materials of illustAC may have quality Larger float. Therefore, under normal circumstances, we default to show you the search results according to the frequency of use of illustrations/vector graphics. But if you want to get the latest material, we also have related functions for you. Just check the [Sort by]-[Latest] in the refined search bar on the side of the page to get the first-hand materials uploaded by the creator!
Negative keyword search
In order to show you the materials in the material library to the maximum, we have relaxed the search precision. This is why you occasionally see materials such as “people” or “fruit” under the keyword search page of “sports”. If you dislike such search results, you can use the [exclude keywords] also located in the refined search bar to exclude those you don’t want to see. In the above situation, as long as you exclude the keywords of "people" and "fruit", you can search for targeted sports materials with higher precision. This function supports excluding multiple keywords/terms at the same time. But remember to separate these times with a comma.
Search by color
Usually, color is not as helpful for vector graphics search as expected-after all, most objects in human society can be Dyed. However, when searching for sports categories, it is not so absolute (it can even be said to be very useful). After all, part of the sports coat color is even fixed. Search by color, you can easily limit the display range of the search results. In addition, you can also use this function when looking for sports illustrations/vector graphics that match the color of the article or website.
Search by number of people
Although people are also members of sports, in illustAC, most of the free illustrations/vectors with people as the main body are classified into the category of “family portrait”. Under this setting, trying to search by number of people in the sports category is very boring. But nothing is absolute. For example, if you want to find sports materials that show “people and nature live in harmony”, you can search with the [number of models] set to 1 in the refined search bar. At this time, you will most likely see illustrations/vectors showing the coexistence of people and sports. And so on, in some specific situations, searching by number of people can help you narrow down your search quickly.
Finding similar illustrations/vector graphics is part of the automatic execution when searching in illustAC. This function will be divided into two categories according to the interface.
- When you try to view from the search results page, the search for similar function will search for sports materials from the vector illustration library illustAC and the silhouette library silhouetteAC. At this time, although the types of similar vector graphics will change (ie illustrations and silhouettes), but from another perspective, these new material categories also provide you with more choices.
- When you are trying to find the same kind of free illustrations/vector graphics, you only need to click on the vector graphics you want to find. This function is automatically completed by another technology of ACworks-search for images with images. By clicking on a specific illustration/vector graphic, the page will jump to the download page of the vector graphic you selected. At the same time, under the label of the vector graphic, an illustration/vector graphic with similar structure and content will appear. Some of these illustrations/vectors are from a unified photographer, and some are not. Royalty-free illustrations/vectors with similar composition but different styles may also be the key to inspiring your creativity. If you can't find the perfect illustration for the time being, it's better to click on a vector diagram that is closest to your ideal state. Maybe it contains more exciting recommendations!
