What are the top textures in modern web design?

Posted in: Uncategorized |

Texture is one of the most popular web design trends. It can be often seen in online portfolios, personal blogs, music sites, photography sites, social networking sites and even business sites.

The advantage of using texture is it could make your site look good and natural, but you have to be careful not to lose the main goal of the design. It’s always annoying to see web designs that are overwhelmed by textures, big photos or other web design elements that make it difficult to read the website content.

As an experienced net surfer I can say that web designers love textures. They use them in websites, banners, graphic designs and more.

So, what are the top textures in modern web design? These are organic textures including wood textures, grass textures, paper textures, wall textures, stone textures, wool textures, leather textures, metal textures, water textures, etc.

According to SmashingMagazine.com there are different ways to add textures to your designs

1. Using a free stock image to create your own texture
2. Creating your own texture from scratch in Photoshop
3. Using Photoshop brushes
4. Using ready-made textures
5. Scaning Textures

I find using textures is like adding a piece of “real world” to websites and blogs. And what do you think about textures in modern web design? Which textures do you prefer?
