This was a little intro about RGB and as we know gradients are all related to colors we must know the origination and formation of colors.


What are Gradients and Why are they Trendy?


Gradients, also known as color transitions, it is a gradual blending from one color to another color. Gradients can also blend or transition similar colors. The color gradient is a set of colors arranged in a linear order. The gradient trend is extremely versatile and because it mixes and blends different shades of colors, gradients are capable of creating new color combinations that are different and modern completely leading to a unique style and design.

The most important factor in the gradient trend is the colors we choose. For the gradient trend to look attractive and creatively designed, we have to either choose colors with similar shades or the colors that work together according to the color theory.


Gradients are mostly used to add depth to a design or an image that is flat or created 3D. Creating an interesting background texture blended with creativity and colors gives a normal boring flat design or an image of a rich look. Gradients can simply enrich anything with their color bends.

As we know now the trend is more focusing on 3D and realism so using color gradients with them would be a great thing. Although it is not easy to create a background color gradient texture manually with the help of software it is quite an easy task.

Another one is when its fully cloudy and a beam of sunlight is passing in between When the sun is setting or rising. There are many things that we notice in nature and like them also. Nature is just like that full of inspiration and colors.
