Textures are a great way to add some depth to your work, especially when used correctly. They can emphasize key elements and break up solid colors. Textures are totally valid in both the print and digital worlds (I’ll say it again) when used correctly. For the longest time, textures were associated with being grungy and dirty. They were used in music videos from the 80s and on old circus posters. They were often the main focus and left designers less than pleased. But with everything becoming so sleek in this age of digital, people were left craving an element of the tactile world, bringing the texture back into the limelight and forcing people to learn how to use them correctly.
