Gradients are a great way to add interest, color, and even depth to a web design. You can use the same color in many shades, many shades of many colors or several other combinations you may think of. You can go linear or radial. The point is that gradients are beautiful and can give your website a very unique style. You can use a cool gradient for the whole website design, or only in the header, footer or just in a couple elements of it, but I’m pretty sure about one thing: combining the right colors and shades will make you a gradient lover! You will start using gradients all over, maybe even at your dinning room wall.
So here is our inspirational selection for this week: beautiful gradients in web design. And don’t forget to tell us if you have some samples of gradients to share.

Gradients are a very trick technique used by designs because it can make the website stand out or make it look really weird.
I really love gradients but I try to be careful when I have to use it.
I agree those are very good examples of gradient web designs.
Hey, thanks for including my Eastpoint design! It’s an honor to be featured by the WDL not to mention alongside the work of Michael Heald and Mars Hill Church.

Great inspirational designs to start of my week. THANKS!
Thanks for the post. Our site features a few soft gradients. Would love to hear your feedback on it.
I have a personal love for gradients! I use them everywhere. I especially like the light blue to dark blue ones and the gradient with the grunge texture overlay. Great examples!
Great source of inspiration!
Really inspiring indeed, so many beautiful websites… Thanks!
Great collection, I’m particularly fond of those that use more than 2 or 3 colors.
colorful background is definitely the trend for websites nowadays.
Great refreshing designs. Most of them are new to me. Thanks for sharing.
I notice one thing, more and more websites are being collected for their great unique styles. So, more and more people are getting inspired. I really appreciate this!
Some really nice examples of gradients here, I think using gradients is actually harder than it can seem.
Sometimes when people use a gradient to try and make a design look “pretty” it can really look disastrous. People try and use too much and clashing colours that just don’t work.
I don’t like to go overboard with gradients, I think nice subtle hints of the odd bit here and there can really transform a website into something special.
I think the two that really stand out in this list are serj.ca and mospromstroy.com.
Thanks for sharing

This post just proves that by adding a gradient to you website design it can add depth, make it look more 3 dimensional and have class and appeal.
