16 Useful Background Generators for Your Website Designs 🎨😍

Have you ever struggled to create engaging visuals for products, branding, and interfaces? The designs you see on UI curation websites often require pro-design skills or many hours of practice. You can get unique and quality-looking backgrounds with the right tools, too.

In this article, I have compiled some of my favorite background generators. I have further sorted them across the categories like all-around tools, gradient generators, SVG backgrounds, patterns, and more, so it is easier to navigate and you can choose between different alternatives.

For each tool I will provide a direct link, a short description, and a preview image, so you can get the initial impression of each generator and its features on the go.

All around tools

1. haikei.app
