“How have I worked without a creative tool like this? It makes me feel like a super marketing guru!”Robert Yuen, Head of Growth Monograph.io

Why did you make this?

While finishing up a gradient generator project CSS Gradient (which launched earlier this year), I unexpectedly noticed the popularity of wallpaper and background images. Digging a bit deeper, I found this huge community of online sites that were curating wallpaper images from the eclectic Deviant Art crowd to the more modern creative commons image sites. While free static images are great, what was missing was a tool that enables non-technical folks to use all the emerging javascript libraries to create unique images of their own. So Cool Backgrounds was born 💥.

Working as a designer for several startups Cool Backgrounds helps solve some basic design problems for marketers and social media managers, but design is an ongoing need. In addition, the recently launched Service List allows companies to get unlimited graphic design help whenever they need it. You send them a design task and a few days later the services send it back to you ready for feedback. We often use them for quick design iterations or smaller design tasks, and the services have given us more time to focus on other business problems.

Use Cases

With the increasing visual nature of the web, the background images from this site can be used for a plethora of reasons. Listed here are a few ideas to get the creative engine started.
