The Elmwood Leeds studio has decided to bring spring to your video meetings with some fun, downloadable virtual backgrounds. We wanted to bring a little cheer into the world and as an added bonus, the team have decided to use it as an opportunity to raise money for their community food bank in Leeds.
With the global pandemic, we all seem to perpetually be in video calls. Professionals around the world have tried their hand at the virtual background function in Zoom, with some displaying beautiful scenic backgrounds while others have just become potatoes. A few of our designers were inspired to create something that will brighten up any Zoom meeting just in time for Easter.
Our three designs are inspired by Easter and the springtime, including egg-tastic yellow, bunny blue and daffy pink.
These virtual backgrounds are free to download, however, we would love for you to make a small donation to Holbeck Food Bank. This is totally pay-as-you-feel, as any donation would be hugely appreciated. As little as £1 can go towards buying bread or milk for a family in need, so don’t feel like you have to break the bank!
To add these virtual backgrounds to your Zoom calls, here is a little tutorial to get you started. We find that they work best with a solid colour in the background such as a wall.
Holbeck Food Bank is part of the Food Aid Network and helps those in need of food parcels in the LS11 area. As you can probably imagine, donations for food banks have dried up due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Holbeck Food Bank provides an essential service to the most vulnerable families and individuals in the area, delivering food to those who are unable to leave their home. In recent weeks the bank’s stocks have run low and it has had to triple its deliveries to meet demand.
If you are unable to donate money but would like to offer food, the charity is looking for tinned veg, meat, pasta and cooking sauces. Unfortunately, the team is unable to take fresh vegetables at this time. If you would like to donate a box of food, please contact David at Holbeck Food Bank on 07710 467587.
