When designing a website you can use several effects to drive attention to an element, emphasize something or simply to give your page an unique and personal touch. From underlines to color schemes, bold texts, shadows, borders and an enormous number of effects, there is an effect for every taste and functionality. Shadows are good to emphasize texts, links and also to give that special ‘detail driven’ touch to an image.
Here we will show you 25 good examples of shadow usage in web design, so enjoy it and give shadows a chance on your next design. 😉
