Examples of Parallax Scrolling in Web Design

Parallax scrolling is a web design technique that involves the background images appearing to move slower than the content in the foreground. It’s an interesting idea that helps to make the foreground “pop” when you scroll, and gives the illusion of depth.

When it comes to web design, it can be a really useful technique for having your content stand out from the crowd a bit more. Of course, it’s not that easy to design and code – it can take a lot of work to get something that looks just right, but when it’s done well the results can be truly astonishing.

To help give you some inspiration, we’ve collected some of our favourite examples of websites that make use of parallax scrolling. If you’re a designer and you’ve not tried the technique before – give it a go and see what you think. And if you design anything that uses parallax scrolling, we’d love to hear about it in the comments.
