    It's a simple tiled background with a repeating pattern.

    This might help you:

    If you're looking for other tutorials, search for "repeating background illustrator" and you'll find a ton of them.

    Thank you - both the link and the google search were helpful

    However, What are they doing to get multiple backgrounds as you scroll down the page at the kaleidoscope site?

    Thanks in advance - James

    You can use either CSS 3 for multiple backgrounds, or set separate div containers with their own width/height and background image(s). Always more than one way to do something.

    Might look into using Xara. Artist gallery.

    There are some background image makers:

    Major Payne thanks as the search for "div containers with their own background" led me to a tutorial I think has the answers, just need to understand it

    you are using your social media profiles to promote your personal brand or business, chances are that premade themes and watermarked templates just won’t cut it. You need a custom design to make your profile stand apart from the rest and convey important information about who you are.There are a few tricks that may save you some time and frustration when creating a custom profile background. While none of these can replace the eye of a great graphic designer.
