Parallax Web Design


Parallax technology came from the visual effect of 2D side scrolling videogames. Games use different background image movement speeds to create the illusion of depth during gameplay. This is done by making the background of the game move slower than the foreground in order to make it seem further away. So this same concept applies to parallax site design in which the background of the website moves at a different speed as the rest of the page for an impressive visual effect that allows for countless creative applications for online storytelling.

What Is Parallax Design?


Parallax design gives websites a great opportunity to dazzle the viewer with page depth and animation. To tell a story and make pages last longer by encouraging visitors to scroll through the entire page.

This approach provokes curiosity and directs vistors to call to action.
Reenforce website credibility with innovative interactive viewing.



Tips for a Successful Parallax Site


A few more things to keep in mind when designing a parallax website are don’t overdo it to make your site too complicated, this will slow the website down. Use the opportunity to tell a visual story making it fun and engaging with depth using layers.

Emphasize calls to action when directing the visitor through the your site and account for older browsers and mobile browsing.



The Downsides to Parallax Website Design


With the benefits of parallax site design, there are also several downsides to having a parallax site. Most of these problems stem from the fact that the majority of parallax websites only have a single long page which is extremely detrimental to the site’s SEO as well as load speed. Here are some of the negatives to using parallax scrolling design:

SEO takes a hit when using a single website page that allows only one set of meta information which effectively allows one h1 tag, and one URL. A ton of images and other information on one page cause slow load times, causing frustrated visitors to leave the page before they even see it. It's also not compatible with responsive and mobile design.

Plus, No internal page linking throughout the website.



New Technologies like HTML5 & CSS3


It is becoming possible to create more advanced, interesting and remarkable effects in the browser. While these effects can be gimmicky, when employed in the right way they can result in a remarkable and memorable website.

One big web design trend of the moment is parallax scrolling, which involves the background moving at a slower rate to the foreground, creating a 3D effect as you scroll down the page. It can sometimes be overwhelming, but when used sparingly it can provide a nice, subtle element of depth.



Parallax Scrolling Come A Long Way


Parallax websites have come a long way since the simple two-layered site. With HTML5, CSS3 and modern browsers, there are many parallax sites that use multiplane animation, introduce new elements and create motion beyond the y-axis using scrolling.



Parallax Scrolling & User Experience


There's no surprise that with the increase of internet usage via mobile devices - that design concepts such mobile first and responsive web design have become highly popular.

The majority of parallax scrolling websites are not mobile device friendly - including the big names like the Peugeot graphic novel pictured above. But given the trend towards mobile web use, that approach is increasingly going to be untenable.




Parallax Scrolling Is Cool


Parallax scrolling is very cool technology. Try not to use it for the sake of using it. Well designed parallax serves its purpose perfectly, but its use of parallax scrolling does not really add to the user experience.



Harness Calls To Action


We scroll and something happens. Capitalizing on the instant feedback when interacting with parallax scrolling websites is a great way to pull people into your site and entice them towards your calls to action.



Over Done Parallax


Some companies has bombarded its website with all sorts of fanciness, and it's definitely an impressive display of technical prowess and beautiful imagery. However, personally I believe they've gone a little too far with the use of parallax scrolling.

When it becomes difficult to find the company logo and understand what exactly the website is about, you should probably question the possible overuse of technology.
