    great collection! looking through this made me take notice of some of the really nice intro copy on display here (e.g. ps.design). it’d be nice to see a collection of the best site intro copy as a leaning tool.

    Great collection thank you! I think that textures give a more real touch to many graphic designs. For example I love the grunge effect and I use it in my own portfolio. I would like to add the link here and I’d love receive comments, thank you!
