What is the simplest and maybe one of the most effective ways to create a slight 3D illusion on a website? Sure thing it is texture! Textures are universal elements used in web design and they allow designers to experiment with their projects greatly.
Texture can bring an illusion of real wood, rock, a piece of cloud or a bit of water being put into the website. Not only textures, (subtle, geometrical, photographic) are widely implemented in design, but patterns, too. Even though often these terms are confused and used as synonyms, they are different. Patterns are smaller and they repeat, while textures don’t repeat and they are bigger in size.
