 Being one of the most demanded and attractive trend for 2 previous years, parallax effect is becoming increasingly popular the present year, winning more and more adherents each day and being far away of overdone.

You can run into it on any kind of website designs: portfolios, e-commerce, corporate website designs, etc. In fairness it should be noted that this effect is mostly used on portfolios or awareness website designs that try to tell the story or convey an important message to the Internet users.

Websites built by using, at first sight, ordinary scrolling effect that is spiced up with  jquery, CSS3 and HTML5 advanced technique looks really vivid and sophisticated. Even simple monochromatic or minimal website design that is devoid of any illustrations or amazing graphics can draw attention by means of this technique.

There are several parallax approaches: vertical scrolling which is used by most, horizontal scrolling that can be fairly often seen on websites dedicated to photography or fashion industry and mixed parallax effect that includes both horizontal and vertical displacement, and even diagonal transition between pages that is a rara avis.

Before installing one of these approaches you should properly consider its advantages and drawbacks.

If parallax effect can vary depending on different factors, what always remains the same is the seamless navigation that is power behind the throne. Rich and engaging user experience of website depends precisely on it. So it should be accurate and user-friendly.

Today, I have collected 25 recently created marvelous website designs that use either vertical or horizontal parallax scrolling to inspire you.
