Paralax and responsive in web design

You may have heard of responsive web design, and you may have heard about the parallax effect – but have you heard of them together? Responsive web design encompasses an entire approach to creating websites where the website can be experienced flawlessly across laptops, tablets, smartphones, and other devices. As more and more people alternate between multiple devices on a daily basis, there is increasing demand for sites that can alternate with them. Responsive websites literally respond to various contexts, resizing fonts, images, and column width, and reorganizing content for optimum readability. So you can imagine why this is an important characteristic for any website owner to incorporate. But let’s take a step further and throw the parallax effect into the mix. Confused? Webeng Team, Inc. spells it out for you.


The parallax effect isn’t exactly new; it has appeared in animation since the 1940s and video games since the arcade days, but it only made its appearance in web design in the last few years. In fact, the parallax effect is simply a term that describes the funny way distance alters perception. Here’s an easy way to understand how it works: Have you ever looked up from your Smartphone and out the window of a speeding train? Then you’ve seen how objects that are close seem to move faster than objects far away. This same principle is being put to work in just about every hot new product website and design portfolio.

Basically, parallax effects are scrolling features that allow multiple sections of diverse content to reside on a single web page, as opposed to a site containing links to many separate pages. As you scroll down a page, multiple background and foreground layers appear signaling new content areas. On some of the more complex sites, each layer is seen to move at its own speed, or “float” over a repeating background, which gives depth to everyday browsing. These effects are powered by various combinations of HTML5, CSS3, JavaScript, jQuery, and other programming languages.

So you might wonder how this ties into responsive web design. Basically, responsive web design allows the parallax effect to be effective across all types of devices – giving your website the look of cutting edge technology no matter what someone is viewing it on.
