Hilarious and Clever Illustrations of Common Phrases


Graphic designer Abdul Latif Nabhan has created a fantastic series of clever and hilarious minimalistic illustrations based on common household objects, that represent some of our most common everyday phrases. These ridiculously simple illustrations collectively showcase Nabhan’s brilliant insight for conceptual design.

Putting the design and charm aside, these clever illustrations are hilarious. Some of my favorites include the ‘Just in Case’ illustration where ‘Just’ is actually inside the case! So simple, yet so imaginative. Other brilliant concepts include the literal demonstration of ‘Time Flies’, and the ‘He’s so Cool’ artwork, where drinks are praising the ‘coolness’ of a cooler.
