I would really like to know how the background on this site was made, was it a picture, or a drawing, or photoshop?


1 Answer 1


Let me lead with the fact I did not design the background but I am a graphic designer of online images for CSS backgrounds. With that said, the background is not a natural starfield as would be seen in space and instead would appear to be a regular grid of images which can imitate a star field.

  • If you look closely you can see the reappearance of artistic elements in the star field at regular intervals.

  • As for the upper banner region, each of the elements was found separately and likely layered and arranged in Adobe Photoshop or another corresponding graphic art manipulation program.

  • I know the art elements were available in the general public because I emulated the design used here on my own website by finding said graphic elements and layering them in Adobe Photoshop.

  • With "reappearance of artistic elements", you mean that the background consists of repeating panes, surely. I can agree with that, but that doesn't mean each pane was drawn by hand; each could easily have been a photo.

    Whether they are actually a space image or not is irrelevant. It IS just a tiny panel repeated across the landscape of the page. I believe it is the information about the use of the panel the OP is asking about. It could be space, it could be a photo, it could be a construction in Photoshop. I could do all three in about the same amount of time. Commented Sep 16, 2015 at 19:23

    @Thaddeus The image makes it look like there's a hole in your answer. It's a really cool effect.

  • Poking through the site's CSS, it's a 255x255 pixel image, tiled to infinity. The tile is here Commented Sep 24, 2015 at 18:39
