new kids on the (texture) block

new kids on the (texture) block

It was pretty quiet here for the last month, due to the fact that I was busy working on other personal projects and client work. But I promise to make up for my absence by posting a bunch of articles over the coming days, starting with this one here. I would like to present you 2 great new texture sites that have emerged recently.

The first new site is called Texturelovers and has been set up by Max Stanworth, who also runs the well-known blog Design Shard. Texturelovers was created with the purpose of archiving only the best textures from around the web, which are free to use for commercial as well as personal design projects. Next to that, the site also contains an inspiration section and covers tutorials on how to utilize textures and creating stunning effects. Head on over there and see for yourself and I am sure you’ll find some pretty amazing content.

The second site that recently came to light, is Free Stock Textures and the title already says what you can expect. The site is run by Paul Wozniak and Eva Sajdak, 2 amateur photographers who are doing a great job assembling a nice collection of textures. Popular categories include nature, wood or grunge and they have implemented a nice color picker tool from where you can access texture categories of different colors – what a great idea! Check out this great resource!

  1. I just wanted to thank you for featuring our site. I’m glad you found it useful.

  2. Thanks for the mention Alex, greatly appreciated.

  3. Hi, need to admit fantastic site you’ve, i stumbled across it in Google. Does you get much traffic?

  4. I have a little secret to share. I came across a web page (actually I was invited) and it offers a secret way to get unlimited income and traffic to affiliate links without the need for a website, or practically anything else. There is a piece of software that takes the pain out of making money online. The software is super secret right now but if you get there fast, you can end up as one of the exclusive limited number of users. This is not your usual ‘guru’ software that you see all over the internet. The guy that made it is not even an Internet Guru at all. I guarantee you have NEVER read or seen this tactic. Once you see how this thing works, you will be slapping your forehead. If you are tired of slaving your life away looking for the next big thing and spending 10 or more hours a day trying to play by the search engine rules, you really need to check this out -> http://tinyurl.com/chdiscount

  5. I do enjoy the manner in which you have framed this specific challenge and it does supply us some fodder for consideration. Nevertheless, from everything that I have observed, I only trust when the responses pack on that men and women stay on issue and not embark upon a tirade associated with the news of the day. Yet, thank you for this fantastic piece and while I can not concur with the idea in totality, I regard the perspective.
