unDraw is an open-source library of everyday illustrations which I usually use in my projects.

From unDraw, it is easy to change the color and download the illustrations in PNG as well as in SVG formats, which makes them highly usable. But what if we can directly explore and insert illustrations within our project in XD? The answer to this question is the unDraw plugin.
