30 Examples of Big Backgrounds in Web Design – Round 2

Four months ago, we showcased 30 Examples of Big Backgrounds in Web Design, and we can say that the trend surrounding big images as backgrounds is still hot. As we noticed that a number of new websites were using big backgrounds, we decided to do a fresh round of examples to inspire you. Here you will see websites using big images as the focal point and you’ll also see sites using big images to enhance the content in creative ways. Keep in mind that using only a huge image as a background is a bit risky, since you might be driving attention away from content. So try to have something “in between those lines”.

    Great post! Right at a time when I’m going to be designing a site that uses large background images on the homepage.

    As Kenny mentioned, I too would be interested to read about best practices for developing sites that use these large images.

    Awesome post, definitely gets my inspired gears turning. I especially love the examples that incorporate elements of the large image as navigation items.
