Blurred backgrounds have become a popular resource in the design community. They’re useful images to base your design on, providing a vibrant foundation to place a logo, typography and other elements to construct beautiful brochure covers, website headers and more! Rather than produce these blurred images digitally with gradients or a Gaussian blur, I used a macro camera lens to take completely out of focus photos of colourful objects to capture the organic tones and hues with authentic bokeh effects.
This free pack of blurred backgrounds contains 40 high resolution images at over 3000x2000px in size. They’re perfect for filling out areas of your designs with vibrant colours, making them great for headers, flyers, advertisements, wallpapers or even as a background to present your portfolio work.
Alternatively, overlay them over your images and change the blending mode to apply interesting colour adjustments to mimic retro style light leaks and film burns.
