Subtle Texture (17)

The Smoothness of Subtle Textures in Web Design

Textures are used in web design in order to avoid the cold appearance of flat solid colours, to instead add an element of realism and that sense of something real. You don’t have to go full-on with concrete, paper or wood textures to achieve this though, just adding a subtle overlay of dust or noise can really enhance your design to give that tactile appearance. I know you’ll get plenty of inspiration from these web designs, and hopefully they’ll help you come up with new ways to use subtle textures and patterns in your own projects.
