This background image is actually a leftover from a set that I created for my stock image collection a while ago. It’s basically an intertwining mix of thick chrome tubes with a light blue transparency laid over top. Simple, but very effective and highly versatile for a wide variety of applications. I actually use this image a lot in my work. It makes for a really good background image due to it’s soft colors and overall simplicity.
Much like PowerPoint presentation templates, background images are another thing that I create more than anything else. Everybody needs background images! The interesting thing is that I’ve created so many of these that it doesn’t even surprise me when I stumble upon one of my images in the media (web, TV, books, etc) every now and then.
