Graphical components, like brushes, gradients, textures and vectors are never enough. There are plenty of sites online for downloading these for free, but sadly, many of them suffer from lack of visitors and promotion. Every week, here at Design Blurb, we shall feature good free resources. If you like/own such a site, please contact me informing the same.
Texture Lovers: Free texture resource
Texture Lovers is a website dedicated to showcasing free texture resources.
Texture downloads are neatly categorized as single textures (including exlusive textures), texture packs, texture inspiration and tutorials. Textures are further classified – for example, single texture category contains sub-categories like wood, paper, stone and foliage.
Textures on the site are also tagged, so if you liked a particular style, you could click on a tag and continue browsing. Related textures are also displayed at the end of each texture page. The site is well designed and neatly categorized, making lazy texture browsing a breeze. It is also one of the better examples of non-blog sites powered by WordPress. The design, features, categorizing and preview images are worth noting.
Currently, the number of textures cataloged on the site is not huge, but that is understandable since the site was launched only a couple of months ago.
Overall, Texture Lovers is a website worth adding to your collection of texture resources – particularly considering how easy it makes the whole process of finding, previewing and downloading textures.
