    Hi Chris… nice collection and isn’t it cool how a nice background image and some text can make a website look so vibrant? Although would this be mobile compatible and wouldn’t loading times be affected also?

    • Kyle Richardson

      You’d be surprised! I’ve been doing research on this for my own site ( and you can down-sample large format imagery quite a bit and still have it retain its crispness.

    Good themes, my favourite is the lets travel somewhere (akos) looks just like Old Harrys Rock in Poole, Dorset, Uk

    A beautiful background image and a simple text can turn a website into a masterpiece.

  • Alen J

    I really like the ‘simple is better’ design trend that seems to be taking over web design (and even app design).

    - I like the thankful registry and big bend brewing designs in particular.

    I certainly agree that these backgrounds create emotion for a viewer. Thanks for sharing and for the ideas.

    These are great. I think there a fine line with some of the highres nature sites though. The user does get lost as there is very little call to action on some of these.
