The web design inspiration article has arrived and it features 32 creative sites. I noticed that parallax is becoming a disease more likely than a trend, reaching a large amount of the new sites that are created.

1. Olly Sorsby

It’s a site of a graphic designer, Olly Sorsby. In here, you can see that the texture is very subtle. It is mixed with scattering of splatters. The overall design is very clean. It gives the site a delicate retro feel. The visitors will be given an impression of authority and, of course, age.

2. Jib

Jib is a boutique and advertising agency based in Toronto. Its homepage uses a slight wood grain texture that spread across the entire theme. If you’re planning to have this type of design to your own site, you’ll have to consider the color of the background as well. In here, the style and the color choice work well. Thus, you’ll have to pay attention to the other elements too when designing your site.

3. We Grow Cherries

It’s a website of the students from Visual Communication at Birmingham Institute of Art and Design. The texture is used not as a background but as an accent for the whole page. This is a perfect example of why you should consider the context of the site when picking this style.

4. In Tacto

This site uses subtle textures that combine with the green-colored background giving you a feeling of living somewhere. The texture fits perfectly with the overall theme.

5. Scott McCarthy

This is a perfect example of how you can use textures as the main point of your design. It doesn’t have to be a tool that you can use to subtly modify the look and feel of your page. Overall, it’s the texture that makes the site more attractive.

6. Inspireconf

This site uses grainy paper texture, which fits the topic of the site. The design is enhanced by the font and the texture giving the site an “old-school” feel. It simply shows that you can use textured element to accentuate a very simple design.

7. IXI Store

The texture here is used for visual decoration. Even so, it transforms the entire site into something that will surely be admired. Without it, the entire site would be sitting there on a plain, dull background.

8. Praline

In here, the texture is used in the entire site. But it’s being applied in a way that it doesn’t overpower the main content of the page.

9. Postable

The texture offers the feeling of a letter, which perfectly fits the site’s goal, i.e. to make beautiful thank you cards.

10. Zindustry

11. Italio

In here, the designer wasn’t afraid to try things that are out of the box. In here, the use of noise transformed the entire site into something else making it more to enticing to eat those Italian foods.

13. Harry’s
