Going green is currently one of the most celebrated topics at the moment, people are trying their best to showcase their efforts in going green in various different ways, and some even adopt the idea when they are designing their web page. While there are dozens of green themed templates available on the internet, some prefer to give their webpage a little more of nature’s touch by using images of leaves and leaf textures. Leaves are seen as the most important part of a plant, seeing that leaves make food for the plant through the process of photosynthesis. Therefore, leaves are seen as a raw image of nature everywhere we go, seeing that they are often around us.
Adopting images of leaves or leaf textures is seen as a more direct approach to give your website a more natural look. Not only that the green color from the leaves also produce a soothing and calming effect for those who are viewing it, giving your viewers a more comfortable experience when they are surfing your page. Besides that, using high-resolution leaf images will help create texture to your web; creating more dimension to your web thus making it seem more realistic and natural.
However, while common leaves are green in color, there are also other forms of leaves that one can put to use, colored leaves, such as yellow, red and orange might help designers to indicate seasons and add color to their web designs. On the other hand, high-resolution images of black and white leaves could also create a whole new different impression and dimension for your web design. Not only that, different leaves from different trees or plants each have their own unique textures; those who are more creative could also utilize leaf veins or dried up leaves to provide more layers and depth to their web design as well. In the end, it all depends on our creativity and the way we use these images and textures to create the most desired effect for our work.
