by Lifted Logic

Trend Alert: Full Screen Video Backgrounds

At Lifted Logic, we love showing our clients the latest trends for innovative website design! There are so many creative ways to give your visitors a dramatic first impression of your website as soon as they land on the homepage. One current trend is the use of full screen video backgrounds. There’s nothing more dynamic than displaying a moving image on your homepage. A full screen video background can be incorporated as a subtle backdrop for text or can it be the main focus of your homepage. Here are just a few ways different companies are exploring the trend of full screen video backgrounds:

National Opera and Ballet

Be sure to visit their website to see the use of multiple full screen video backgrounds and represent multiple ideas within one landing page page. The use of slow motion in these video backgrounds allows the eye to focus on the calls to action placed over the videos.While we are showcasing the “tamest” of the three full screen video backgrounds, we think you’ll enjoy the others as well!

Nokia Transitions

The soothing video of the sea represents New Zealand’s South Island, the location of the tour. The soothing sounds of the wave add interest, but are not distracting.

Aquatilis Expedition

Water continues to be a popular theme! The Aquatilis Expedition created a site to inform the public about their expedition and used a simple wave loop as their full screen video background. As you scroll through their site, you’ll notice even more subtle background movement.

For own Lifted Logic homepage, our designers could not deny the visual appeal of the full screen video background! Our backgrounds displays portions of a longer promotional video. With a slightly bolder approach, we overlayed the video with large text, and a call-to-action button that invites users to watch the full video.
