What’s the idea of a good site navigation? If should guide the viewers easily through-out the site and be quite understandable. What’s the idea of creative navigation? It should do the mentioned above plus make the visitors’ journey around the site captivating.
Under creativity I mean some techniques like parallax scrolling that creates a kind of 3D effect (of course, a faux one). When you see a site with various backgrounds that move at different speeds to one another, it is definitely parallax. It’s hard to mix it up with something else, ‘cause it can be clearly seen that it creates the feeling of depth (the objects that are close to your seem to be larger than the other ones).
Parallax websites is a way to withdraw from boring layouts with the usual navigation that can be a wise one, but oft-recurring.
If you think that all parallax websites look the alike, you’re mistaken. It only seems that the changeable layers produce the same effect, but various ways of their implementation can give totally different results. What exactly? Continue reading this post to see it and discover the top parallax websites.
Have you ever seen a site of typefamily that presents it so impressively? Single page layout with parallax scrolling invites you to see all the variations of the type. The contrasting colors, interesting solutions for presenting text examples (as citations, magazine pages, prints on cups, book paragraphs) work excellently for catching your attention.
This design reminds me scrapbooking where a variety of pieces (different materials, papers, fabric, ribbons, etc.) are nicely arranged in one work. This site welcomes you with its delicate tones, so wonderful images, nice typography and parallax scrolling.
