Site of the Day:

There’s a lot to appreciate in this design, but I’ll focus on just a single detail: the texture. I love the texture on this website because it isn’t used in a gritty, extreme way. The site just has some nice noise textures in the background, an interesting striped pattern on the ribbons and a rich cork texture behind the display text. The texture doesn’t dominate the design; it simply adds a layer of depth and beauty to it.
