Read the full post

Wood textures in web design aren’t anything new, in fact they were pretty trendy after the days of “web 2.0″ until they kind of lost their coolness. Recently though we’ve began to see wood textures make a return in website designs and iPhone and iPad app interfaces. This post rounds up a showcase of 30 web designs that are all helping make the wood texture cool again.

    I think that Designer Founders website is the best here, but maybe that's because I was already backing their project over KickStart. Either way, you got yourself a pretty awesome collection Chris! Thanks for sharing.

    I think wood texture is always nice and give a website or any graphic piece a certain depth to it. Love the collection you came up with!

    Hipstamatic is a great example of a website using wood textures in an appealing matter. Wood textures, in my opinion, only really lost its edge because of the amount of websites that were designed using wood textures in the exact same manner which made it really boring.
