What Is Parallax Scrolling In Web Design?

Ever heard about Parallax Scrolling in Web Design Trend??

Definitively, Parallax is a relative change of angle from two static points, relatively with each other, just like as observed from a moving observer.

Just imagine when you look a static image in public spot (like LED Display, Standing Banner, etc). Try to focus your eye to only one spot of one part of image and walking as you are still looking at that very spot. That's what we know as Parallax Effect in Web Design

This Parallax term itself started from 2 Dimension Video Game Era, where the background and the actual objects are on separate layer, that create an illusion of depth differences between the objects and the backgrounds. Sometimes the background with move slower or faster than the character objects itself. This is the very basic concept of Parallax Scrolling that is used in most recent Web Design trend nowadays.

Many Web Designers and Web Developers in Indonesia are competing with each other to create the most stunning website with its own unique Parallax Effect.

  1. Single Page Website

Because visitors will be more interested in seeing the animation and the effects than to actually see the Products or Services that are offered in the website. Additionally, Parallax Effect require a highly advance Web Design skills and longer time to develop than regular Websites.
