What I like about this set of mockups is the way the illustrations are made less boring using some accent colours and dots.

The same technique is also used with the circular icons.

Contrast as a Differentiator

Interestingly, the illustrations uses contrast as a way to make one item more important than the others. It IS one way of highlighting the most important item in a list no doubt.

Coloured shadows are not easy to pull off. In this example, it is able to do so because there is consistency with the highlighted icon.
