• Thanks for the new list! I was wondering if my wedding website that I have just launched last month, will qualify as an example too. It’s a subtle use tho. 🙂

    Very inspirational, thank!

  • Very nice, congratulations

  • Such a well-curated gallery of quality sites! (Admittedly – something I’ve come to expect with Design Instruct).

    It’s amazing the degree of “heart” a subtle texture can inject into a site. Thanks for showing me some new ones (which are being bookmarked as we speak!).

  • Thanks for the great post. Textures do a lot to give a site depth. Nice collection.

  • Amazing examples, thanks for share.

  • As usual awesome inspiring post Jacob. Thanks!

  • Hi Jacob,

    just redesigned my corporate website and portfolio, both also loaded with textures! If you wanna take a look at sublte use of textures, please be my guest:

    Thanks for sharing, Cheers & Ciao ..

    Wow, awesome list.

  • Really good collection of sites here! I would have to agree that even a subtle use of texture can add a lot to the feel of a website. Thanks for sharing these!

  • Sweet examples! I’ve started using this on my latest project, http://www.casholas.com, as well. Great inspiration!

    Awesome collection Jacob! One thing I would like to bring up is something that I’ve noticed for a while now. It may be just me, but I would really like to see the images link to the websites as well as the titles. Perhaps it’s me being used to other sites, but every time I find myself trying to click the image. Just a suggestion 🙂

  • That’s an error on my part. I do typically link the images too so that you can click on it, I must’ve forgotten it here. I’ll update this ASAP.

  • Alex W

    Thank you, just wanted to bring it to your attention 🙂

  • This took longer than it should have, but it’s been updated. You should now be able to click on the images to open the actual website.

  • Thanks! this is awesome for web design
