Sunbursts are a very popular design trend within web and graphic design. A sunburst represents sun rays (or beams) exploding from a source point. They’re a Web 2.0 trend but they tend to work well with other graphical elements.
This post looks at how to create your own sunbursts, using existing Photoshop shapes and brushes and I’ve showcased 15 beautiful websites that include the sunburst effect in some shape or form.
