18 virtual backgrounds we love

We all remember that cringeworthy yet hilarious BBC interview. When Professor Robert Kelly was about to discuss, live, the geopolitical impact of the recently impeached South Korean president, his two little ones walk into the room. Yikes!
Sometimes a virtual background can help us look more professional during video conference calls. They can also help us stand out or communicate a point. In these days of video call fatigue, anything we can do to lighten up the conversations and give us an excuse to bring back some fun and casual interactions is in our opinion, a no-brainer.

Using one of our favourite tools, Canva, we've designed and put together a list of awesome backgrounds you can use in your meetings. Some fun, others a bit more pro, there is something here for everyone. We hope you like them and share them with your family and colleagues.

To download a virtual background:

  1. Hover over the image
  2. Right click
  3. Save image as...
