Where can we find Coil visual assets? Ideally vectors or SVGs :)

We are creating Coil landing pages and marketing collateral (i.e. images for Tweets and social posts etc) to promote Coil on our site.

Here's something we started a few months back:
https://www.designclub.org.uk/coil

We'd like to do more.

Does anyone know where we can get Coil illustration assets? Like the ones on this page:
https://coil.com/creator

I'm not sure about Coil's own assets: like Radhy said, I'd directly reach out to Coil. If you'd just like assets with a similar look and feel, I'd suggest Icons8, they have a lot of vectors in a similar style: icons8.com/illustrations/styles (Pablita's probably is the closest one).

I don't think Coil assets are being CC-Licensed, thus not readily available for anyone, as from their term and services page states:

A. Content

We’re proud of Coil’s look and feel: Fabian and his team spent ages designing it. Our service and our content belong to us or others who have permitted us to use it. You may not copy or use any of it without our permission, unless otherwise permitted by law.

The best way to get them is to contact directly for Coil team and ask them yourself and see if you could get what you needed. However, if you want solely Web Monetization based assets and illustrations, these should be on GftW's roadmap and you could wait for them. GftW assets should be CC-Licensed for anyone to use as far as I know (I think it's already more than a year since I requested the GftW team for this back when GftW community still using Discourse).

Ah, thanks! This is useful. Need Coil assets really. This will help us create something compelling on the Design Club site that feels Coil branded, creating more a visual link for potential members.

@noamso We raised this with Coil and they are considering a way to get this to community members to use. We will update when they get a plan together.

Actually it could be great if there's a supply of free assets that related to Web Monetization. Coil and Imgur have pretty good landing pages and illustrations to promote Web Monetization, but average developers won't have the resources to create something like that.

Of course, the team have addressed this as far as back when the community still using Discourse as primary forum last year. But as they have told me that it would take time to provide the free assets (it really did...🥲), I reckon it would be a good idea for community members to also help each other in this regards. I'd be happy to see if there's a project such as SVG Repo and Font Awesome but specialized in Web Monetization-related assets coming from one of grantees - but since I don't know one who does this, I'm planning to help creating assets myself and share with the community in the near future.

What do you guys think? Does anybody have the same thought of helping with this as well?
