Having a hand-drawn web design is great for creating a personal and down-to-earth touch that will turn heads.

Though hand drawings in website design is not one of the hot trends, it is a style that we all come across from time to time. As you can see in the examples below, there are many ways to incorporate hand drawings in your web design and results are often great. Just like, with any other kind of art there are different styles that all fits the description “hand-drawn”. Rather you use illustrations, doodles, cartoonist drawings or sketches they all help you create a web site design that seems personal and approachable. However, if your goal is to build a website for selling your product, it is often a good idea to find a fine line where the design not only is creative, fun and entertaining, but also exudes professionalism and a business like attitude.

Recent years the need for differencing your website has been prevailing making it legit to experiment with creative designs and themes. Creative websites often make use of portfolio themes as these themes are both great looking and are easy to navigate for the users. Especially WordPress portfolio themes are great for creative business websites and often solve the needs for showing off skills, products and services online. Add up a few hand drawn icons and fonts and you are good to go!

I have found some great looking examples of hand-drawn web designs you can use for inspiration, and find style elements that you might want to incorporate into your existing web design or perhaps new ideas to create a hand-drawn web design from scratch. Please let me know in a comment what you thing about hand-drawn web designs in general. Enjoy!
