Although there are many ways to use textures in web design, if you want to create a modern design, you only need to follow some relatively simple rules to get relatively good results. The following 7 design tips will help you do this. of. 1. Simple and understandable textures Really good background textures, most of the time it won't even be noticed by the user. It should be a barely visible element and contribute to overall readability and usability, while providing enough visual depth. A simple and understated background texture is the best way to enhance the usability of the entire design. On the page of last year's Github Universe conference, the designer used a simple black background with a textured design of white dots to create the effect of a night b2b data sky. Against the backdrop of the night sky, the colorful LOGO and gradient buttons are well recognizable. Simple background textures usually have small, tightly repeated patterns, which can be of any color. The idea is that the background texture does not exist as a focal point, but as an important tool to set off other elements. 2. Textures can be bigger and bolder Textures can be subtle and small, but they can also be huge. Be bold and choose a larger texture or pattern, which can also produce good results. The texture of this oversized pattern can be used as a background, and the foreground should have heavier elements, such as a certain amount of text, or relatively heavy visual content such as pictures. Such background textures/patterns are actually tricky to deal with in general, as there is a chance that it will be noticed and distracted by the user. In order to ensure that this oversized texture pattern does not affect the normal effect, it is best to pay attention to analyzing user habits and matching the overall content. If the traffic or conversion rate of the page drops, then the user must not obtain the information. 3. Combine textures with current design trends Designing textures in combination with popular design trends can often make the entire design present a contemporary experience. Geometric elements are one of the most popular design elements, and incorporating geometric shapes into the background can undoubtedly be very attractive. Take a look at the design of this website, Apacio, where colorful geometric patterns are mixed on a dark background to create a deep and eye-catching visual that draws the user's attention to larger text and CTA elements through contrast. The text is in a minimalist sans serif, which allows them to stand out from the black and green background. The level of texture is supportive for the overall effect. It is worth noting the contrast between the textures and patterns in the background, the background, and the foreground elements. 4. Use images to build textures The background texture does not have to be the kind of carefully crafted small pattern. Some pictures with rich details can also be used as the background texture, which can increase the visual layer and enhance the attractiveness. The trick with this design is that the image needs to fade into the background. In the above case, the Oxeva website uses two ways to integrate the design into the background. On the one hand, the designer reduces the brightness of the image so that the user can see the outline of the landscape, and then the designer superimposes an image in the foreground. Gradient color layer, which makes the whole background appear very visually expressive. The pictures don't provide much detail, but they are still visually distinguishable. 5. Use Color Variations to Create Texture Using homologous colors with different light and dark saturation can build shapes or text, and the same effect can be achieved. Changes in color can also create a visual effect of depth. The website Types of Type uses huge letters with color variations as textures in the background, and even without tricks like gradients and shadows, it still has depth and enough balance. This kind of design makes the whole page look lively and not boring, and the contrast makes the whole design clear. 6. Use Gradients to Create Texture Effects
