Playing around with textures and patterns for my portfolio site's coming soon page... one small step at a time.

really digging this andrew - this style is really trending right now
I agree with Chad, style is everyhwhere - but still.. it looks great. Keep it up.
Is this a graphic or actual webtype? Just curious, that's all.
It's a graphic.
Great job, Andrew! Maybe you could share some more :) ?
P.S. Have you tried different serif font for "designer / frontend web developer" ?
Thanks Michal. I did try a bunch like minion and garamond, and they looked pretty sweet. I stuck with georgia, because it's so easy to use as a web font... thinking aloud now... maybe I should explore some typekit options.
Looks great Andrew. The textures are real nice, including the shadows. The grid is also rather nice.
As mentioned above, this effect is becoming quite popular at the moment, and this is a nice example. Try maybe adding some colour to it to make it stand out a bit or make it a little different to the rest!
Loving that flourish at the bottom too!
@Andrew Agree, and yeah, Typekit sounds great. Maybe you could give Google Fonts a try, too?
I like the subtle grain and placement of the ornament. I second the idea of adding a pop of color. What if you colored specific letters to spell out something design related. Like "A NEW .... "
Thanks Jeff. I definitely like the idea of more color. I always start black and white, then work my way there (I think I have color commitment phobia)... not sure how I feel about color on only a few of the letters. btw, off topic... but the Andrew Jackson graphic for Parachute Journalists is just sick!
