As we all know, textures aren’t new in the web design realm. Adding texture as a design element to a website creates an intimate, warm feeling while giving the website some character. As you’ll see, texture doesn’t always have to come in the form of a background image, but can be expressed through its logo or buttons, for example. Whichever way you use texture, you’ll find the use of it is most successful when it compliments the content of the website while adding visual interest.

In this showcase I’ve rounded up 30 websites that employ texture somewhere in the design of the website. If these sites grab your attention enough you may feel compelled to incorporate textures into your own designs.

Conclusion

As you can see, the use of texture can create an added layer of visual interest to a website that would otherwise be minimal. While there is plenty to be learnt from minimal, web 2.0 esque websites, a texture that speaks of the concept of the website is almost like bringing that website to life with character and authenticity. What are your thoughts on the use of texture in web design?
