When designing a website, every step of the process is important. From content to usability, appearance to structure, every element counts to make a difference and create the perfect design. From super clean and minimalist layouts to colorful and eye candy designs, there is a place for every taste and approach. Following the recent trend of using big background images in web design, we decided to gather a list of websites using portraits in their layouts. So in this showcase we will show you how several designers are using portraits at their designs to make things more personal and to give a nice unique touch to their sites. From small thumbnails to illustrations and big background portraits, we have a lot of inspiring examples to show.

I’m using a portrait of myself on my site as well to create a more personal experience for my visitors. With so much saturation in the market you have to everything you can to stand out and I agree that portraits are just one way to help by associating your face with your name and create a more memorable experience.
use of large background photos particularly catches my eye…
Thanks, great Collection.
Would love to perpetuate my portfolio page here too.
I’m building a site for a belly dancer at the moment and I’m going for the big image and text on the left type of layout and I hope it can make it into this type of list one day! This post came just in time.
