Web Design Inspiration: Parallax Scrolling Effect
Parallax Scrolling both vertical and horisontal was definitely number one in web design trends of 2011 year. Plenty of designers use this kind of technique in order to make impressive website designs. For one reason it`s very simple since all information is available on one page, all you have to do is to scroll down and you don`t need to bother about proper navigation. For other reason it`s really simple and easy way to show your designer skills by creating and illustrating amazing story about your project.
Usually parallax scrolling effect is used to create personal portfolios, business websites or sites dedicated to different kinds of events for example conferences, science fairs, festivals and charities. Different designers choose different concepts in their works. For example, some create whole story about theme, other create separate section and combine them into one design.
One page websites generally consist of 4-5 sections such as
- Landing Page
- About Me Page
- Contact Page
Today I`ve collected some fresh examples of websites that have this cool trendy effect.
