Icon sets representing feed and social media sites are all over the web, giving webmasters noticeable promotion tools. However, most look the same, or very close to the same.

Use these 10 icon sets as promotion tools, or for you’re own inspiration when creating icons.

40 Textures Inspired by Nature

There are a lot of things you can do with texture in web design, and it’s always an inspiring challenge to think of interesting ways of utilizing them. One of my favorite inspiration methods is nature, and what a better way to use nature in web design than to look at alternative views of nature through texture.

I’ve collected 40, relatively large textures created by nature under the categories of rock, leaves, water, ice, wood, animal skins/fur, feathers, grass, and sand. With the shapes, depth, and color nature can create on it’s own, using these textures to create art is only a small step away.
