Free High-Res Textures for Photoshop


June 1, 2011

As you have probably noticed, one of the break-out styles in web (and print) design throughout 2009 was the “Grunge” look. Less structured looking, chaotic and textured elements strewn about a web page to create the sense of a grungy or dirty look. Ranging from a desk scene, with coffee stains and paper clips lining the page, to a dirty crumpled paper bag, designers have gone in a million different directions with it.

No matter what direction you are taking, the textures you use throughout your elements are going to play a big role in its success. As a designer who has experimented with grunge elements in the past, I can tell you first hand that second-rate, pixelated or poorly done textures are only going to hurt your work. So when I came across the following page, I thought it could be a great resource.

BittBox.com has listed several sources of high resolution textures and supporting images in one place, including photographic textures and purely abstract “grunge” textures. You can find the page at:

Adding these textures to any text, web page, poster, etc. can give it that little edge and push it over the top from a good design, to a great design. Enjoy!
