From Kaleidoscope website, we learn that a patterned background can be combined with some colorful elements and the result is still eye-catching. For web-designers with great talent in illustration, they can mix and match a colorful illustration and paste it on a repetitive background to make the design more memorable like what we see on the Hugs For Monster website.
As in Tanya Merone and Elitist Snob’s websites, we learn that combining a tiled patterned background and a plain colored background is just like getting the best of both worlds. We could get a bit of simplicity from the plain background and also a bit of crowd from the repetitive pattern which together turn the design appearance into something in balance.
Patterns remind us of our home’s wallpapers and some designers also use it to create a real situation in design. Take a look at the Viget Labs website, the designer has combined the tiled pattern with real object photos to make the design look real, it feels like we’re staring at the wall of someone’s house for real.
To power up your pattern collection, here we have sorted out some of the nice patterns for use in Photoshop. Browse around, dig in and put a better background in your next project.
