WHY IS TEXTURE IMPORTANT IN DESIGNING?

Texture is an element that plays an important role in design and is defined by two aspects----
  1. Visual
  2. Tactile (feel/ hand)
Texture is a surface quality related closely to our sense of touch or sight. All the things we see around us feel differently when we touch the surface of the object. Texture may be hard to soft or smooth to rough. Textures that are smoothing, pleasant draw us to them, other abrasive, unpleasant and repelling. This is a very important for a Designer to use the right material for the product.    

TEXTURES FOR DIFFERENT PRODUCTS

  1. Designing clothes, it is important that the fabric texture should produce a pleasant and comfortable feel to the skin.
2. Designing bags the texture can vary from soft, slightly rough , uneven texture for the aesthetic look .
3. Designing for kid’s clothes and accessory should be absolutely soft, and comfortable to baby skin.
4.  Designing for life style products which might not come in contact of human body, can be uneven, rough, abrasive. Since uneven textures creates light to reflect in different angles and giving a creative edge to the surface.       Image courtesy: spotonstyle.com, aliexpress.com, newdelhi.olx.in, otto-otto.com
