How to use the mockup backgrounds

These backgrounds are perfect for presenting design work to clients or mocking up a professional presentation for your portfolio. Logos and icons in particular can appear a little bland and lifeless, but mocking them up on a vibrant background really helps them stand out without taking away from the main subject.

Capture the browser window in your website design screenshots and mock up your pieces as if they’re being viewed on a computer desktop. Likewise, show how your app icons sit nicely against various sample wallpapers.
