Unique Website Backgrounds

By Jacqueline Sinex, Tuesday, November 10, 2009

With the wonderful flexibilities of CSS (style sheets), we are able to create attractive backgrounds with minimal coding and without compromising the efficiency of a website. Adding an elegant background element can help the website to stand out from the crowd, or it can even send a message about what your website is trying to achieve.

You might include a very simple pattern in the background like this example, and allow the pattern to stretch with the browser so it “fills up” the space on various computer screens.

Or, you might use a vibrant image that relates to a product you are selling. Some sites about entertainment events (like films) format the background to look like a movie screen or the back of an invitation, for example. Suddenly, you aren’t on an ordinary website – you are part of an experience.

You can even get creative with your Twitter background, as shown in WEBii’s Twitter Profile.
