What is the texture of the website template?
The title of the third chapter of the book is Texture. The meaning of this word is texture, foundation, and theropod. Of course, the feeling (such as softness or roughness) that people get from touching different surfaces is also called texture. The texture is something that makes the appearance of an object or surface different, and it is that difference that induces a certain feeling in the viewer. What does it feel like when we touch the surface of the wood? Or even when we see something with a wooden surface? We don’t need to touch it to understand its surface quality.
You must be thinking to yourself: it is not possible to make the appearance of the website rough or soft. Is it possible to talk about the texture of the website template? It is true. You are right maybe at first glance, using this word for a website may seem a little strange and far-fetched.
When you enter the website atozofai.withgoogle.com, it is impossible not to remember straw paper and school. This is the magic of website template texture. The format of this website has texture. A texture that reminds the viewer (user) of paper.
So, some websites need to have a different look. The view that gives the user a special feeling is the texture of the website template.
How to choose a texture for the website template?
How should the website designer decide on the texture of the template? If it is an educational website, should it be given a paper texture? Or if the website is for a business that deals with wood, should the template be given a wood texture? No. The template of all websites doesn’t need to have texture.
This is a decision that the web designer must make considering various factors. The first step is to see if the website needs a template texture and a specific view. Did your employer ask you to do this? Or did you find in your research that it would be better if you designed the website in a certain style? So, you should ask the opinion of the employer. You should decide with a reason whether or not to add a view with a specific texture to the website.
The second step is choosing the best style and form to show that texture. This is where we have a very important recommendation for web designers: get to know the history of art and the history of graphic design, and read about different styles of architecture and painting. The paintings of great painters such as Van Gogh and Cézanne also have a special texture. They didn’t just make the sky blue. They made it so that when you look at the sky in their paintings, you feel the sky.
How many types of website template textures are there?
As mentioned, the texture of the template should give the viewer a certain feeling and remind him of a certain surface. Also, in choosing the context of the type of project and the request of the employer, it is decisive. If the project is a website about the history of ancient Rome, it is natural that elements related to ancient Rome should be used in its design. Or if the website project is a Chinese restaurant, using elements or images that remind the viewer of China is a very good option.
So, there are different types of textures and they can be designed and made in different styles. That is, there are not one or more types of specific textures or specific styles for designing and making the texture of the website template. The web designer in each project chooses the type and style of designing and making the texture of the template based on the characteristics of that project.
Each website has its topic and message. The web designer must find the most expressive form and style, the texture of the template, to display and deliver them to the user.
How to create texture for a website template?
With the help of the basic elements of graphic design and a little creativity, a web designer can create a work of art like Roman architects and great painters. Design elements are point, line, shape, depth, volume, and pattern. The web designer must know the features and uses of each of these elements well. It is only in this way that he can choose and implement the appropriate style and form to create a specific view of the website. Of course, the website designer should pay attention to the website design trends for selecting, designing, and making the texture of the template.
