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.
