Selection of Beautiful Hand-Drawn Doodles in Web Design

A quick inspirational post today (a quickie but a goody!) showcasing a selection of beautiful hand-drawn doodles in web design; a trend that is becoming ever more popular as the weeks pass by.

There are nine designs in total, a small amount, but together are sure to inspire you much more than you expect! Hold on to your seats, let’s go!

Coopers Kids

Coopers Kids uses a lovely grungy splattered background, with a lovely hand-drawn doodle of a clown holding a selection of colourful balloons.

New to York

New to York uses a great composition in its web design, using diagonal lines and a bright yet limited colour scheme. The use of a hand-drawn hand gun makes the design much more visually appealing than it already was; a real stunner!

Lindsey Jayne May

This soft and modern design makes use of some great photo-manipulation techniques, blotchy watercolour effects and the use of texture on a simple grid-based design. The hand-drawn line drawing of the a humans skeleton in the header of the design adds that extra “oomph”, not to mention how superb the colour scheme is!

Red Velvet Art

This design is quite busy but surprisingly works very well. It reminds me a lot of a well used notepad or sketchbook, two items that are quite commonly used when it comes to art-related topics, whether it be traditional art, digital art, photography or even knitting! The colourful scheme makes this site a happy one, perfect for all art lovers!

Adam Amaral

The great portfolio of Adam Amaral is simple and is purely based on a sketch; from the header, writing and even the navigation and image frames. The illustration in the top left corner tops this design off, a great composition!

Made To Kill

Made To Kill doesn’t use as much hand-drawn elements in the design of the site compared to others in this selection of designs, however where it does, it is done very well. The Made To Kill logo has been hand-drawn to make it look like chalk on an old-fashioned chalkboard.

Esteban Muñoz

This great design has a superb hand-drawn doodle/sketch in the bottom right corner of the site, which, if visited, will follow your cursor around. Some may find this annoying, but at full-screen, it’s a piece of art in itself and for me is pretty damn beautiful!


The majority of this design is rather standard. The header design, however, is incredible. It is based completely on a sketch, using hand-drawn elements to create a border for the logo and navigation. A fantastic idea that works very well with the rest of the digital-based design.

GNL Entertainment

This flash-based photography portfolio uses some digital fonts that have been made to look like handwriting, mixed with some simple but lovely hand-sketched icons at the bottom of the page, linking the user to various social media websites such as Twitter, Facebook and Flickr.

8 Free Scribbly Hand-Drawn Textures

It’s been a while since I’ve posted any textures, but I’ve been hard at work making some recently, mainly for a secret project that I am working on with the great Benjamin Reid (Nouveller). Stay tuned for more information on that in the coming weeks and months!

Anyway, this pack, which I decided to post here at Circlebox Blog, includes eight high-resolution textures which were hand-drawn using various colored pens on card. They are completely free of charge, and can be used in both personal and commercial projects!


The total pack comes in at almost 55mb, and can all be downloaded at once in a .ZIP archive file.

The Little (Free) Sketchy Monster Social Icon Pack

There will never ever be too many social icon packs even though there are literally thousands laying around the world wide web. This is actually (believe it or not) my first ever set of social icons, titled ‘The Little (Free) Sketchy Monster Social Icon Pack‘. The set consists of seven icons in total, including: RSS, Twitter, Delicious, Facebook, Digg, StumbleUpon and Reddit.

You can download and use the icons free of charge in your personal and commercial projects with absolutely no link-back required (however it is always appreciated). The only thing I do ask is for you to not redistribute the icons (i.e. make them available [downloadable] on your own website or blog) or build upon the pack without my permission. Otherwise, you’re free to do as you wish with them!

In the download file you will get a preview image, seven transparent .PNG images (these can be scaled down easily if you require them to be smaller), and a Read Me (TOS) .PDF file. The zipped file comes in at about 492kb.

If you use them on your site, I’d love to see them in action – so link us up below in the comments section! Enjoy!
