One of the hottest web design trends in the past couple of years has been the parallax scrolling effect. Parallax scrolling happens when layers are scrolled at different speeds in a simulated parallax motion effect when the cursor is moved. The end effect gives a cool user experience and some web developers have taken it to new levels and have made some pretty amazing parallax websites.

Although recently popular as a design trend for websites, parallax has actually been around since the original Nintendo days. Here we’ve gathered 15 amazing handpicked examples of parallax websites below.

  1. Beautiful collection, minimalist design and great art! I really love these kinds of designs. Only one thing, are they responsive?

  2. Nice Collection..We did a SEO Parallax Scrolling website. It is not as pretty as the onces in this collection but it is SEO friendly.

    We used parallax scrolling as a design concept to be applied to each URL rather than putting the whole website on one URL.
