When creating a captivating image, you’ll need to start with a background. Here are some different background variations you can use when creating imagery:
Use a solid background to make a quote stand out or to highlight a few keywords. Use similar colors or contrasting colors for varied effect.
Creating a unique look or feel can be accomplished with a patterned background. Get creative here. There are lots of backgrounds to choose from in image creators like Canva – but feel free to create your own as well!
Grab the attention of your audience quickly by using an image as your background. You can use different techniques with your image, like creating a transparent overlay for your text or blurring the image.
COPY SPACE BACKGROUNDS
When creating an image, you want your text to be clear. Placing the text directly over an image is not a good idea (unless there is a drastic contrast between the coloring). One way to avoid this is to find images that already havebuilt-in copy space, which is blank space within the image.
I hope that these background design tips inspire you to take your visual marketing and creativity to the next level!
