Top 14 Neutral Background Images of 2021

The say­ing “less is more” applies to pho­tog­ra­phy just as much as every­thing else in life. Neu­tral back­ground images can be great for sit­u­a­tions where you want to cre­ate visu­al inter­est, but don’t want the pho­to in ques­tion to steal the par­ty. This is why ocean images are so pop­u­lar in busi­ness com­mu­ni­ca­tion. But look close­ly and you will see that neu­tral images are far from bland. In fact, they are often inter­est­ing enough to stand as works of art on their own. Browse any art muse­um and you will see neu­tral-look­ing works every­where. With that in mind we encour­age you to revis­it any pre­con­cep­tions about the mean­ing of “neu­tral” and browse our com­pi­la­tion below with an open mind.

Top 13 Geometric Pattern Images of 2021

Geo­met­ric pat­terns have long been favored in archi­tec­ture not just for their innate attrac­tive­ness, but also their struc­tur­al prop­er­ties. Most geo­met­ric pat­terns are made up of repeat­ed tri­an­gles or rhom­bus­es. Occa­sion­al­ly you will see many-sided poly­gens or cir­cles. Orig­i­nal­ly cham­pi­oned in Islam­ic art, geo­met­ric pat­terns aren’t hard to find in mod­ern architc­ture. From vast steel struc­tures to end­less glass pat­terns, we hope you enjoy the fol­low­ing com­pli­a­tion of geo­met­ric pat­terns from the Wun­der­stock image library. Many are also suit­able for use as desk­top back­ground or smart­phone wallpaper.

SBA Disaster Loans: The Unofficial Guide for Freelancers & Startups

We know more than a few entre­pre­neurs and free­lancers who’ve been caught with their pants down by coro­n­avirus. Luck­i­ly the fed­er­al gov­ern­ment has pro­vid­ed help in the form of dis­as­ter relief loans– mon­ey any small busi­ness can bor­row direct­ly from the U.S. Small Busi­ness Admin­is­tra­tion at a very low 3.75% inter­est rate– no bank approval required.
