door to my garden > Background Savvy

Background Savvy

While the imagery and typography used for door to my garden certainly go a long way toward creating the dark, brooding mood that the work projects, the effects largely focus on the use of background graphics. Of course, this could be said for many of the Zen Garden designs, but door to my garden illustrates very clearly how positioning backgrounds and defining their scrolling behavior can create a unique look.

The main effect is fashioned rather simply and works well across various browsers. Lauke placed a background into the body and fixed it there (FIGURE 1). Then he created and set his content area to the right and overlapping the background image, allowing the content to scroll above the fixed background. Working with background images is a cornerstone of CSS design. It’s essential that you understand the properties available and how they can affect and influence the way your elements are styled.
