Parallax Scrolling in Web Design: Hot New Trend with Examples

Parallax Scrolling in Web Design

Parallax scrolling in web design is a design trend that is going to be huge this year. In my original blog post about Parallax Scrolling I wrote back in April, I listed some tools and tutorials to help you achieve this effect in your web designs:

Now I am going to show a few more awesome examples of parallax scrolling. Many of these websites use parallax scrolling to provide the illusion of a 3-dimensional effect, which adds a great subtle effect for visitors. Below is a compilation of some of the best websites that use parallax scrolling in a way that is amazingly inspiring. Enjoy!

Have some examples of parallax scrolling to share? Did you use this technique on your own website?

Leave a comment, we would love to hear from you.
