The value of choosing the right background
If you feel like your design is missing something but still can’t put your finger on it, you should definitely consider changing the background—or adding one altogether. Background graphics add texture, or an ornamental element, to a design—often completing it and adding a layer of depth to the whole piece of work. Plus, they can be used on their own as wallpapers to give your desktop some personality. And more:
- Backgrounds set the stage for your designs. A great background complements your work while adding decoration to it to make the entire look stand out. That’s why even picking the right background is an art!
- Backgrounds add texture to your projects. Although flat design is super trendy right now, sometimes you still need to add a little depth to your work. That’s when a great background comes in handy: you can add fuzzy furs, metallic shine, or grungy textures to your designs to make them more unique.
- They add intense mood and energy. A simple way to add drama to your work is to consider changing out the background. Explore different colors, shapes, designs, and moods: a different background can completely revolutionise the vibe and the meaning of your work.
