How to use the mockup backgrounds
Use the background you like the most as a base for an original logo or, try it out as a website’s background and see how different colours, sizes and styles of typography look on it. You’ll achieve an eye-catching result in no-time and also get more experience along the way. Testing out different possibilities can actually improve your design skills really fast. At some point, you might not even have to test out different ideas, you’ll end up knowing exactly how to combine your elements to create an amazing design. It will also mean you will end up having an amazing design library with various elements that you can mix.
Or you can use the backgrounds to see how your hand drew icons look on it. Maybe they need a background colour or maybe they look better exactly how you drew them. It is up to you to see and find out how you can mix the graphic elements to make an outstanding design.
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.
Check out the line25 website for example and see how great it looks on this pink textured background. It would have looked rather dull in a presentation if I just left it as a simple screenshot.
