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!
