Parallax design is a trend on many websites at the minute which can often give a classier feel to any website design. There are a few things you should know about it as this impacts the different styles that you may or may not like related to parallax design. Before we look at some of the considerations, let’s just compare this with a few examples of how this can look in practice.

Non-Parallax Design

Above you will notice nothing happens as you scroll. This is just a standard image.

CSS-Parallax Design

Above you will notice how the image stays steady as you scroll, which reveals a different part of the image as you scroll.

True-Parallax Design

Above you will notice how the image moves as you scroll and so does the part of the image you are viewing.

Working with Parallax Design

When working with Parallax Design, there are certain aspects to consider. Specifically the underlying technology you are using on your WordPress website or other front end framework. Depending on the underlying technology you have in place will depend on how simple or difficult this type of effect will be to implement on your website. Always consider the underlying technology choices to give you the most freedom when wanting to add cool effects like this to your website. When working with poor technologies, often your only choice is to look at rebuilding a website from scratch. When working with good technologies, you can implement this style on various parts of your website with ease, just as we have done here to highlight the different options available when working with the right technology.
