Parallax Scrolling

Parallax scrolling is a technique that originates from film and game making and is now used in web design that creates a beautiful illusion of depth in a 2D world (Ku, 2015). The visual aesthetic it can create if used properly is very effect, to my eyes anyway. I love all of the different things that can be achieved with this parallax scrolling and as Ku (2015) mentioned in his article the rising trend for visual communication, parallax scrolling really seems to be the way to go if I am wanting to create a visually pleasing website for my users.

This first image is an example of a website that uses parallax scrolling.

This second website uses parallax scrolling but in a different way, when you move your mouse around the screen it changes and is very interactive.

Parallax scrolling is something that I would love to try and accomplish in my career.
