The parallax effect has been around for years in classic video games, but it became a trend in the web design world relatively recently. A while back parallax was being used to deliver an explosion of elements floating around the screen, and a lot of times the websites using the effect were a bit overwhelming.
Parallax scrolling is great, not just because it makes navigation simple, it also can be fun to interact with. It can sometimes be overwhelming, but when used sparingly it can provide a nice, subtle element of depth. To show how it should be done, we’ve collected together sites that employ the technique to good effect.
Letting you know what’s possible, letting you enjoy the sites and their contents and hopefully inspiring you to try this technique for yourself. We hope you find this a useful source of inspiration for your next project, and if you come across any creative examples that we’ve not listed.
