In this post we’ll be looking at some awesome site backgrounds that have been created in Adobe Illustrator or in other similar programs, and have an unmistakable, specific ‘vector look’ which is very trendy currently. They usually use shiny looking illustrations as part of the background graphics, or collages of various decorative elements, again with a digital look.
In this case it is very important what image you choose to feature on the background: creativity is more than necessary in the choice you make. It is enough to rightly place one illustration whose drawing style and original subject is astounding and you will convey a special personality and character to the whole site.
Sometimes, entire illustrative stories or situations can be created, which the visitor will have to discover and explore. Or, on the other hand, the background can be just an abstract combination of well-drawn, digital decorative elements. In any case, the process of creating these illustrative elements is of utmost importance. They shouldn’t display any technical flaw because they would give a very unprofessional look to the whole site. Showing perfect technical skill is part of the special appeal of such elements and, when well-introduced in the site graphics they will have an astonishing effect. The examples in this collection will prove this point and inspire you to create your own vector-looking backgrounds!
