This blog has some really great points about using gradients in design, which is many times something that I forget about. I've used them before and they really can make a difference. It gives real depth to an image, like a logo or icon. It can also draw attention to an area, functioning much like a sort of auto-light/dark. A lot of her examples look really neat, though I wish I could see a copy of them without a gradient to compare. I also love her little tutorial about how to make a cool splatter gradient. I think it has a sort of science/futuristic appeal to it; it's more modern.
If nothing else, just check out the pics. Creative Curio really is a cute blog!
