Asphalt, a sticky, black and highly viscous liquid, is mainly used as the glue or binder for road construction. In digital designs, asphalt in the form of texture is used for creating beautiful background, overlaying with other design elements and more. Asphalt textures are a great collectibles for every web and graphic designers that enhance their designs.
In creating smashing designs, we usually use texture like broken glass texture and brick textures as an added effect to make the design more intense. On the other hand, we use texture like lined paper textures, linen texture and old paper textures in creating realistic background that are visually appealing to our visual readers.
There are also some cases that we use texture to fake real effects like the popular photographic effect namely bokeh. We use bokeh textures, sometimes with the help of bokeh brushes, to make a Photoshop version of bokeh photography. Texture is indeed a very helpful design element for every designer.
