Day 60+ into Quarantine, It’s Time to Level Up Your Zoom Game[Virtual Background Inspiration]


Shelter in place orders are likely to extend well into summer in LA county, and many companies (Google, Facebook, Microsoft, Amazon and Twitter to name a few) have already rolled out long-term/permanent remote work plans.

All to say — that for professionals working in big tech, it seems we’ll be stuck with zoom meetings for awhile. So why not have more fun with your backgrounds?

Clever, creative, and otherwise pretty, I’ve scoured the internet for six amazing zoom background themes. Perfect for your next work meeting, cyber coffee break, or OOO hang with your pals.

The Chic Office

Miss going into work every day? (No I’m not teasing!) For those that miss the atmosphere of a chic office with formal boardroom meetings, these zoom backgrounds are for you.
