Video backgrounds have become a popular design feature in recent times. When utilized properly, they can both entertain and inform users. Take PayPal, for example. Their use of a video background perfectly illustrates the convenience of using their services. The videos are simple and concise. I’d argue that they say more about the brand than a few paragraphs of text possibly could. Why?
