What is a background in graphic design?

Well-crafted compositions contain many elements, and one of them is a background. A background can be defined as the image or scenery that is behind the protagonists of the composition, which are other elements placed closer to the viewer. The background can also be a flat color, gradients or textures. These, in fact, create depth and contrast and allow other elements to stand out more, including overlay text.
