Free download: Awesome low-poly PSD backgrounds

By WebdesignerDepot Staff | Freebies | Jan 29, 2014

One of the biggest trends in 2014 will be geometric patterns, inspired by the low-poly look. So we’re really excited to be able to bring you these great geometric backgrounds absolutely free of charge.

These high-definition PSDs provide the perfect backdrop to big typography, and the subtle textures add a lovely craft feel to any design.

The different color schemes call to mind everything from crumpled paper to hazy mountain scenes, and of course all of the colors are fully editable in Photoshop.

This is a great way to break away from the dull, flat, color blocks designers have been using recently, without returning to full-blown gradients.

The PSDs are supplied by bestpsdfreebies.com. Run by two Mikes from Saskatchewan, Best PSD Freebies is coming up on its second anniversary and in those two years has quickly become one of the best resources for high-quality, free PSDs, on the Web.

    Dude make it free or charge for it but fuck paying with tweets.

      You’d rather pay than spend 3 seconds sending out a tweet? I’m with him. I’d rather grow my business, market a valuable product and show people what I can do.

      Scratch that. You don’t even have to tweet! You just have to sign up for WDD’s newsletter.

    Cool pics, but I’m not sure how these things are going to influence web design much. They don’t seem very useful as background images. The header on this post uses one, but its all that successful. Do you have any links to show examples of this stuff in use?

    • Roberto

      If you need examples then you don’t need this stuff. Simple.
