|−|== Purpose == |+|
|−|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. |+|
