With many companies and schools alike turning to telecommute, you may end up utilizing the web conferencing application Zoom. It allows individuals to communicate with others via video or audio-only or both while conducting live chats. The meetings can get monotonous; however, a way to turn up the fun is by incorporating an impressive background and let me tell you, there are hundreds of them. I have curated a list of some of the nerdier environments for your web conferencing needs.

Things are strange these days, and I hope these backgrounds bring some joy to your next meeting. If you’re unsure of how to add these images to your conference, I have included a link to the Zoom instructions here. The headers before each picture also link to the original internet posts as well as other similar backgrounds. There are hundreds of company and fan-generated backgrounds floating around the internet, I’d love to hear what you guys have found or perhaps created yourself! Let’s get those fandom flags waving high!
