In the world of digital design using premade workpieces such as UI kits, textures, graphics and icons is as inevitable as using high-level programming languages by developers. But you are going to have a hard time trying to make your designs look unique when using resources created by someone else. That’s why today we will introduce you to our top free background generators developed to enrich your design experience with mind-blowing randomly generated artwork.
Experimenting with these free tools is real fun, largely because it often takes only one click to build a creative, professional-looking background. They cover all the modern styles being suitable for virtually any web design project.
The tool helps to generate the background in the form of vertical stripes. 5 different colors are available for you to choose the best option for your needs. The tool is extremely easy to work with - just select the resolution and color to go with.

This is a simple and intuitive background image generator. You can choose the base color, pattern, intensity, and a few other settings. It generates the image for you. The tool is great for creating tiled website backgrounds. Create your perfect background with the help of 300 various patterns and styles.
This is a simple SVG based pattern maker. You can either choose a ready-made icon or upload your own one to craft an attractive background for your website. The width, height, and background color are editable. This is currently a work in progress with more features to be added soon.
This tool can be used to create low-poly backgrounds with rather soft gradients (compared to Delaunay-based generators) and preset color combinations.
In the settings you can change the size of the canvas in pixels, pick the palette, the size of cells, and set the level of variance. The Variance parameter defines the entropy of polygons: if you set its value to 0 your background will be comprised of neat rows of triangles.
This generator offers a choice of 27 refined foolproof color schemes, but if you feel like it’s not enough to satisfy your creative endeavors you can build your own scheme using the 24-bit color picker. The resulting images can be downloaded as PNG or SVG files.
Trianglify Background Generator (we have already featured it in one of our previous posts) uses the same Trianglify JS plugin, but differs in implementation. This script utilizes several hundred palettes from ColourLovers and ColorBrewer, and also provides some additional settings such as a choice of a gradient type. Although there are two new parameters in its menu – Bleed and Cell Padding, this version of Trianglify lacks the intuitive Variance slider, and is limited by premade palettes.
In the beginning was the word. And now you too can create something beautiful using your word as a tool – thanks to Geopattern. This simple script generates seamless geometric patterns from a string using 16 shapes and unlimited colors. The resulting patterns which can be saved in PNG format.
Although the demo is fully random, by digging into the source code of the plugin you can send it to your direction being able to choose a specific pattern, save your images in SVG format and enable Base64 encoding.
This tool makes use of Delaunay triangulation to generate impressive high-contrast low-poly backgrounds.
In the settings you can change the size of the canvas, its depth, cell size, etc.; apply up to 7 lights; change the color, position and their distance from the canvas. If this sounds like a lot of trouble just use the “Randomize” button and let it do all the work for you. Keep pressing it until you receive an awesome background.
Flat Surface Shader comes with a different, more dynamic and random approach to Delaunay triangulation. Although its interface looks exactly as the one of Delaunay Triangle Pattern Maker, there is a great difference between them: the light sources in this tool are in constant movement (unless you set their speed to 0), thus increasing the randomness of the resulting image.
Our next generator is indispensable for web and app designers, especially for those, who work with iOS, as it allows you to create beautiful gradient backgrounds on fly.
The sweetest thing about this tool is that it automatically generates the CSS code for the gradients it creates. The drawback is that you obtain only the code at the output, so if you are going to use it elsewhere than the web you will need a separate script or application to salvage the raster images. We recommend using Phantom.JS for this purpose: it requires a certain level of coding skill, but is flexible enough to handle this task.
This one is as simple as such thing only could be. You just type the size you need in pixels into the proper bars and hit the "New" button. The result is shown as the background to that website, so you can see what it will look like right away. The picture is combined of a number of geometric figures of different color and size. Most of the variants are not really beautiful, but after a dozen clicks, you can find some that will fit your needs.
IMGonlone offers visitors a number of tools to work with the JPEG images, such as resizing, conversion or compression tools. One of them is random pixel background generator. The usage of it is really narrow, a rare website owner would like to put a diverse picture in the background (it is a real burst of colors and might look a little... well, too much). However, if you were looking for such a bright solution, this generator will be a real treasure crate. You choose the size of the picture and squares, file format and quality and then hit "OK" button. You will be redirected to the page where you get an opportunity to preview the image and download it.
