Zoom Virtual Background
Zoom backgrounds designed for perfection. Well…Virtually.
No doubt you have been participating in a lot more online meetings in recent times.
Many of us were unprepared for this major shift in the way we network and communicate with clients and colleagues. In the early part of 2020, Zoom’s daily active users jumped from 10 million to over 200 million in just 3 months.
Endless grids of faces sitting in front of plain walls. Do you know what we call a blank wall in media and marketing? Ad space. This is a unique opportunity to market yourself in a way you can’t usually — you can control your background.
Background plays an important role in how you are perceived by customers, prospects and colleagues. This is why video creators spend thousands on lighting and prop placement for TV to enhance the background.
While it’s fun to set your virtual background as the Simpsons living room during staff video calls, there is more at stake for sales opportunities and building brand awareness.
That’s why we’ve used our design and digital marketing expertise to craft customized, premium zoom virtual backgrounds to help customers — and now you.
Be Different. Stand out With Branded Zoom backgrounds
Blending into your environment is the surest way to go unnoticed. Some savvy businesses have already caught on to the marketing opportunity using branded backgrounds. Right now, they are standing out the most among the sea of free stock photos everyone has access to.
Branded virtual backgrounds for Zoom helps:
- Be memorable to others
- Promote your business for you
- Enhance your brand perception
- Keep your branding consistent across staff
Your tailored backgrounds can be repurposed and used for social media, website content, email marketing and adverts.

For as little as £30, you can get a premium animated or static Zoom virtual background made by a graphic design marketing professional. Use them across your team and spread your brand far and wide.
Virtual backgrounds and video calls are here to stay
Popular speculation suggests that flexible working isn’t going anywhere. Even the most reluctant companies have now adjusted operations to cater to working from home. Workers have been able to demonstrate working productively with remote work while saving travel costs and commute time. According to Forbes, “when the pandemic subsides, WFH will remain popular with professionals, and that will force companies—even those that were not the biggest proponents of having a virtual workforce—to become more flexible”.
In other words, premium backgrounds are a long-term investment for any company.

Getting the most from your background
No Option To Select Virtual Background?
In your browser, click on your profile image icon (top right) Zoom setting, go to ‘Personal’ and scroll down to ‘Settings’, click ‘In Meeting (Advanced)’, then scroll until you see ‘Virtual Background’, switch this on, which will then save automatically.
Is your Zoom background mirrored?
If your background is not displaying correctly and mirrored, scroll back down to the chevron next to the video camera icon on the bottom, and click on ‘Video Settings’. Click on the ‘Mirror My Video’, this should rectify your image to display properly.
Have a Green screen?
If you have a greenscreen or a solid background behind you, this will help with your virtual background to display properly.
Avoid Blending Into Your Background
If your background is blending into your real background and you may be ‘floating’ within your background, you probably don’t have enough light to support the effect, try moving to an area with lots of light, or an over-head light or window will do.
