Every now and then one needs a little jump start to get those creative juices flowing when designing a website. When I’m experiencing a creative block, creative sites that offer free resources, textures and patterns always get me back in the groove again. I’ve put together this hand picked set of patterns for you, to help keep your creativity flowing when designing for blog and web. Enjoy!
Tip: If you’re designing with gimp check out this pattern overlay tutorial. If you’re designing in Photo Shop and would like to have a .pat file, open the seamless pattern via Edit>Define Pattern to use it in your PSD web template mock-up. You can then save your chosen patterns as a set via Blending Options>Pattern Overlay>Arrow Button>Save Patterns to save them as a set. You must clear out all of your patterns to save just one set. I keep a master set of all of my patterns for ease of re-loading. This also works great when syncing files between multiple computers! 🙂
