Backgrounds and edges throughout the applications and workspace should be consistent to communicate the same visual message about material and lighting.
+
 
+
== Guidelines ==
+
* The backgrounds and edges throughout the interface are designed to represent the look of very high quality paper (e.g. card stock); ''light in weight but familiar, purposeful and substantial''.
+
* The background of application windows is fully opaque.
+
* The background of plasmoids - panels and widgets on the desktop - is (barely) translucent.
+
* Edges are sharp and distinct. Corners are sharp but non-threatening; ~2px or 3px corner radius.
+
* When designing with the visual design [[Projects/Usability/HIG/Color|color set]],
+
** The general background color is [[Projects/Usability/HIG/Color|Cardboard Grey]].
+
** [[Projects/Usability/HIG/Color|Paper White]] can be used for more information-dense content areas (whether in plasmoids or applications) for improved readability. These might include longer lists, tables, large blocks of text documents, charts,etc.
