I installed this add-on and tried to import .ai files from illustrator. Unfortunately, the imported 2d vector graphics where all in grey plane object- even though the paths where there.
Any ideas how to fix that?

If you save from illustrator (or Inkspace) into SVG format, then you can import your elements to blender using the built in SVG importer:
Just make sure that all of your elements have been coverted to pahts.
Please read this post:Why can't I import a SVG file from Adobe Illustrator or Inkscape?
So, the thing I thought was to save it as .SVG and then import it... I exorted the graphics as .SVG and even though in inkscape the file was loading as it was, in blender it was again the same...
Long story short, I solved it by changing the file from .ai to .svg though this site: http://image.online-convert.com/convert-to-svg
There are many similar sites, just lookup "ai to svg" in Google
